Warm-up for Starlight at the Wolf Pen Creek Fajita Cook-off

Beef FajitasThink your fajitas are the best? You have a chance to prove it at the Fajita Cook-off on Saturday, May 4 at the new Wolf Pen Creek festival site.

The festival grounds are a beautifully-manicured, 10-acre green space located between the WPC Amphitheater and the Arts Council of Brazos Valley on Dartmouth Drive. The new amenities include about a half mile of 10-foot wide concrete walking trails, and water and power hookups that enable us to better serve vendors and festivals. 

The cook-off starts at noon with aprons and gift cards awarded  to three places in both commercial and non-commercial categories. The deadline to enter is April 19, so click here to register.

Throughout the day, your entire family can enjoy folklorico and salsa dancers, mariachi bands, and horse-riding, rope-twirling charro groups. The kids will want to check out the petting zoo, bounce houses, and arts and crafts. You can also visit our food vendors and witness the fiercest cooking competition this side of the Rio Grande.

The activities will wind down around 6 p.m., but the fun will just be starting as country music star Rick Trevino and special guest Del Castillo will headline the opening night of the popular Starlight Music Series at the Wolf Pen Creek Amphitheater. Bring your blanket and join us for a beautiful night of free music under the Texas stars!
