TERLINGUA, BOQUILLAS – Sotol Festival 2019! Join us as we celebrate the indigenous distilled spirit of the Chihuahuan Desert at La Kiva Restaurant and Bar in Terlingua, Texas and Boquillas, Coahuila, Mexico on April 12-13.
At this one-of-a-kind, binational festival you will have the opportunity to try many brands of sotol and meet the sotoleros who produce it, along with on-site camping, live music, local vendors and more. If you are asking yourself “What is sotol?” or if you have known about this earthy elixir for years, this festival is for you.
On Friday, April 12, the festivities begin at La Kiva Restaurant and Bar, with live music from some of the best Terlingua local musicians. Saturday morning we’re taking the party across the Río Grande from Big Bend National Park to our favorite town in México, Boquillas, for an authentic experience and to celebrate the unity, peace, dignity, and respect that we enjoy daily here in our piece of the borderland.
On Saturday night, the party reconvenes at La Kiva for more live music from the Pinche Gringos, The Doodlin’ Hogwallops, and headliners, Mike & The Moonpies – and, of course, more sotol tasting!
Admission to Sotol Festival 2019 is free, and campsites are available to reserve now at www.sotolfestival.com. Official festival t-shirts and merchandise are also available for pre-order and are expected to sell out, so don’t wait. Pack your bags, don’t forget your passport, and get ready to SOTOL FEST!
