August 2016: Top 10 Festivals in Texas

It’s true what they say – everything’s bigger in Texas. Cowboy boots are bigger. Hair is bigger. The insatiable desire for breakfast tacos and BBQ is bigger than life itself. And when it comes to festivals in Texas, well, let’s just say there’s no shortage of celebration in the Lone Star State. From Austin’s quirky food festivals to San Antonio’s cultural events, Texas festivals have something for everyone. 

This past month, we kept track of the 10 Texas festivals getting the most love from the Everfest community (the August fests you saved and the fests you’re going to). Check out the winners list and get ready to get your fest on!
