Our next biggie is a brand new event, the 1st Annual Texas Salsa Showdown, on Friday and Saturday, May 31 and June 1, at the Wharton Civic Center.
We expect this festival to blossom into an annual event that will be enjoyed by Wharton area residents and attract visitors as well. It can truly showcase what Wharton has to offer.
There will be a salsa tasting contest, food trucks, beer for sale, fellowship, craft booths, the Cops ‘N Rodders Car Show, and a tailgate-style cookoff. And music — the J.R. Gomez Y Los Conjunto Bandits on Friday night and Steel Country on Saturday night. Visit texassalsashowdown.com or 979-532-1862 for ticket info or vendor info.
The 10th annual Wharton Chamber Citywide Garage Sale will be Friday and Saturday, May 31 and June 1. Go to whartonchamber.com or call us for vendor participation form.
More to come. Talk about it another time. Thank you!
