Marfa Lights Festival, Coming Up!


Get ready to enjoy some unforgettable Labor Day merriment as Marfa Texas celebrates its 27th Annual Marfa Lights Festival!  One of the sponsors of the upcoming event is AEP Texas, bringing with them a legendary exhibit of their newest Smart Meters and GridSmart Progams.

The foot-stompin’ music of The Doodlin’ Hogwallops with Hotel Brotherhood will be the show’s opening. Following this, AJ Castillo and Austin Tejano, alongside co-presenter Ballroom Marfa, will rock your festival nights!  AJ Castillo’s modern accordion tempo and unique musical flavor will sweep you off your chair and on to the dance floor!  Using his exquisite talents to transcend the traditional accordion genre, Castillo brings folk music lovers to a whole new level of bliss.

The stunning 21-acre Vizcaino Park has been procured as the festival’s community gathering location by the Cultural and Arts Organization of Marfa with help from the Marfa Chamber of Commerce.  Beginning on Friday night, the opening of the festival will be composed of traditional country dancing and two-stepping.

The festival will not only feature music, but also traditional Marfa-famous food and craft booths. These booths can be enjoyed by all at the Presidio County Courthouse.  Be ready to be enthralled by Marfa’s cultural richness as you revel in all it has to offer.

There will be a parade on Saturday morning led by the Chamber’s Citizen of the year, Robert Silva.  The parade will start at 10 in the morning and will begin at Highland Avenue.  Mariachi Santa Cruz of Presidio will officially open the Sunday festivities.  So get ready to lose yourself in a colorful weekend of food, folk dancing, and remarkable fun for everyone!
