Texas International Pop Festival
This year’s Texas International Pop Festival, which is called “Texas Pop Turns 50,” marks the 50th anniversary of this event. Back in 1969 — just two weeks after Woodstock — more than 100,000 music fans flocked to Lewisville for one of the largest music festivals ever held in Texas. This festival, which lasted for three days, featured greats like Led Zeppelin, Santana, and Janis Joplin.
This year’s festivities will take place on August 31 and September 1 at Lake Park Golf Course, and boast an impressive lineup that includes legends like ZZ Top, Chicago, and Joe Cocker, as well as up-and-coming musicians. Guests can also pop around the “Texas International Pop Festival: 50 Years Later” exhibit, which will provide photos, archival video footage, and artifacts in remembrance of the 1969 event.
El Tesoro Tequila Tasting
The first ever El Tesoro Tequila Tasting will be held this year on July 15 at Alkeys Lounge & Eatery. At this event, an expert will educate guests on the tequila distilling process and talk about other fun facts for tequila tasting. For example, attendees will receive advice on how the pairing of tequila with particular foods can highlight the subtle tastes in each blend.
In addition, guests will be treated to tasty Mexican fare, including Jalapeno Poppers, Carne Asada Tacos, and Tres Leches cake. Only 20 tickets are available, so if you want to attend this event you should book ASAP!
