Join us the weekend of September 20th for The West Fest Cabrito and BBQ Cook-off. Friday evening have a margarita at the White Buffalo bar before putting on your dancing shoes and heading out to hear Craig Carter Band who is playing that night.

On Saturday, enter the competition and bring out your best recipes, or relax, take in the scene, and taste the best of Texas and try the likes of steak, goat, beans, brisket, bread, dessert and salsa! The cook-off is located 5 miles outside of town at the Post Park, which sits on the Pena Colorado River beneath the shade of cottonwood trees, and surrounded by mountains.

Come on out for delicious food, great company, and a good ole’ time! Hope to see you there.
