Featured February Event: Pioneer & Ranching Crafts Day
Put on a pair of boots and c’mon over to the Museum of South Texas History to celebrate Pioneer & Ranching Crafts Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17.
This community festival will offer a day filled with entertainment, activities, folklorico performances, traditional ranching foods, and demonstrations that illustrate the crafts and traditions of early farming and ranching in South Texas and northeastern Mexico.
This year’s theme celebrates the multitude of bootmakers that exist in the Valley, some for multiple generations. Families and visitors can also experience live ranch-style cooking and craft demonstrations with music by Texas Sweethearts and Pepe Maldonado y su Conjunto. Children’s activities and artisan vendors will be scattered throughout the museum grounds for a better family experience.
