Texas Wine Festivals And Events

Mark your calendar for these 2024 Texas Wine Festivals And Events.

You don’t have to travel to Napa for good wine. Texas has wine …and it’s good! After all, Texas is the fifth-largest wine-producing region in the US! I can’t count all our Texas wineries, but I know they are in every inch of the Lone Star State. Here is a list of all the Texas Wine Festivals and Events we have gathered thus far.

This list will continue to update with new dates throughout the year.

Activities Offered At Most Texas Wine Festivals

But first … did you know most wine festivals and events want to make everyone happy? In doing so, the program administrators offer fun activities for everyone and every age. So, if nobody in your group drinks wine or your kids are with you, there will be activities they can participate in. I think that’s a fabulous idea!

Here are a few fun things you can expect at a wine and music festival. Some are free, and some charge a fee.

2024 Texas Wine Festivals And Events & Wine Trails

With October being Texas Wine Month, expect many things to happen this month – including new wines, tasting champion wines, and possibly finding your new favorites. What better way to find that perfect wine than to try it at these festivals?

I found my favorite wine while attending the Texas Wine Trail in the Texas Hill Country for the first time in February 2022, and I am still enjoying it today. Not only did I realize I’m a red wine lover, but Tempranillo has the taste I love – so now, I ask for it first. I go to my second love, Cabernet Sauvignon, next. But I have no problem with any red wine—I love it all!

The wine industry has exploded here in Texas, and I am super excited about that.

For a Texas wine experience, peek at these events and pick the ones you like! I have listed wine festivals by month of the year.
