BorderFest had its beginnings in 1976 when a committee from the Hidalgo Chamber of Commerce set out to celebrate American Bicentennial by commemorating the local border culture, the international setting, and the unique community spirit. The first attempt drew 500 people; 36 years later there were 89,928 in attendance. Now celebrated each year on the first weekend in March, BorderFest is a four-day-plus extravaganza staged by the non-profit BorderFest Association, with more than 122 committee chairmen and co-chairmen, and over 1,000 enthusiastic volunteers. An enlightened leadership, a sympathetic city administration, many business supporters, and a proud citizenry have now brought BorderFest to its 38th year.

Fun for the entire family!
