35th Annual

Texas Live with 35  —  March 12-15, 2020

It is with great deal of sadness that we cut our Texas Live with 35 festival short. The plug was pulled when the City of Denton told us this afternoon they were closing the Civic Center as of tonight. We are very disappointed and wish things were different. Thank you for your continued support. The board will meet on Tuesday to figure out the finiatial ramifications. Your understanding is appreciated and crucial.
