Here's What Not to Miss in Texas

Must-see events in Texas focus on the state's dedication to community. Texas' never-ending events calendar boasts far more than the state's famous annual fair. From fishing festivals to picnics presided over by country stars such as Willie Nelson, there's much to attract national and international visitors in Texas. Meanwhile, Austin is known as the live music capital of the world, and locals conflate music with life.

The Best Family-Friendly Events in Texas

Welcome to the state with an ice cream festival! Meet Big Tex and watch BMX performers land big air tricks, or relax with a picnic in the famous Southern sunshine.

  • Texas State Fair

    Every year, there is a different theme for Texas's celebrated state fair. Since the first fair in 1886, the event has drawn the state together at Fair Park, a National Historic Landmark. Over 24 days, representatives from nearly every discipline are represented. Attractions include the appearance of Big Tex, the fair's blimp-like mascot; a heated college football tournament; and a BMX bike show.

  • Luckenbach Family Picnic

    Bring the family to this exciting outdoor festival, which was originally hosted by renowned country music singer Willie Nelson. Dating back to 1972, the event is ideal for young cowboys and girls, as it is set on a ranch and features leading local and international country music stars.

  • Austin Ice Cream Festival

    Many argue that this is the sweetest part of Texan summers. Your whole family (including pets) is invited to the festival of frozen yogurt and indulgent iced treats made following traditions that hail from near and far. It's the most delicious way to cool down in summertime's sticky heat. Look out over Lady Bird Lake and enjoy the shaded spots in Fiesta Gardens.

The Best Outdoor Events in Texas

Polka dancing and parades, sauerkraut and fishing fanatics, buskers and the Texas Rose Queen – there's just too much happening in Texas' stunning scenery for an exhaustive list, but here's what not to miss.

  • National Polka Festival

    On three consecutive summer days, the people of Texas gather together to celebrate their Czech heritage. This open-air festival features a plenitude of traditional foods along with polka music and dancing. Try sauerkraut and sausages and get involved in the parade, which winds through the city of Ennis. Bands and buskers perform traditional Czech tunes at this huge festival, which draws fifty thousand revelers.

  • Texas International Fishing Tournament

    August augurs the end of summer, but the fish are biting. Fishing fans from across the state gather to fish on the sparkling waters of Laguna Madre Bay, Port Isabel, and South Padre Island. Over 10,000 spectators await their hauls on land and are not disappointed. Anglers young and old reel in redfish, flounder, perch, and trout, with a trophy for the winner.

  • Texas Rose Festival

    Each October, Tyler becomes the site of the state's most fragrant festival. Conceived to support the growing rose economy in Texas, the festival attracts thousands. Central to the three-day event is the Rose Queen, who presides over the festival, attired in regal gowns. It's one of Texas's oldest and best-loved events.
