Cuero Turkeyfest

Celebrating Cuero's Turkey Title

About Turkeyfest


Get ready to put on your dancing boots and groove to the beats at Cuero Turkeyfest! Our festival boasts an impressive lineup of bands that will have you dancing all weekend long. And when you need a break from swingin’ your hips, there’s plenty more to enjoy.

Explore the arts and crafts market, where local artisans showcase their talent with unique and handmade treasures. Indulge in the mouthwatering flavors of fresh biscuits and cobbler at the Dutch oven and camp cooking demonstrations. Feeling brave? Test your taste buds in the jalapeno-eating contest—if you dare!

Kick off Saturday morning with the Turkey Trot 5K, a fun run for all ages, followed by the Great Gobbler Gallop and our beloved Turkeyfest Parade, a spectacle of color and excitement that lights up the streets.

But that’s not all! Turkeyfest is a family-friendly affair with activities for everyone. Kids will love the turkey egg hunt, the thrill of the carnival rides, and of course, marching in the parade alongside colorful floats and festive performers.

Cuero Turkeyfest isn’t just an event—it’s an experience that captures the heart and soul of our community. Join us for a weekend of unforgettable moments, laughter, and fun for the whole family!
