Agave Festival Marfa is an annual city-wide festival celebrating the agave and its influence on culture through food, film, music and scientific programs. The Festival treats the agave as the indicator species for a region that is binational, multilingual, and deeply informed by indigenous history. It brings communities together through outstanding free and affordable programs including talks by preeminent historians, botanists, artists, anthropologists and archaeologists. Films, exhibitions, tastings with agave spirit producers, and unforgettable border-inspired dining experiences are offered to everyone. A variety of performances by leading artists in contemporary and regional music ensures a lively 5-day event, from June 6 through June 10.
A full schedule is forthcoming; stay tuned at agavemarfa.com for the lineup of events throughout the festival.
