Take a break from studying by…

  • Helping bring home the Guinness World Record for World’s Largest Ice Cream Sundae – proving everything is truly bigger in Texas.
  • Jamming to live performances by top musical groups of all genres – including rising country star Stephanie Quayle and Tejano band Las Fenix — while enjoying Texas favorites, such as ‘ritas, fajitas, brews, spirits, and more.
  • Curbing your cravings at the Curbside Smack Down, featuring 50 Texas-based food trucks vying for $11,000 in prize money.
  • Living out your barbeque dreams at the BBQ Cook-off.
  • Shopping among over 100 Texas-based vendors in the Trading Village.
