The Best Party in Texas!


Full Bar

Live Music


LONG LINES: The busiest time for this festival will be on Saturday from noon until 4PM. Please avoid attending during this period of time.

EVENT: Whoaaaa Trigger, whoa! Manage your expectations cowboy. This is a Cheese and Wine Festival with a Texas twist! Please don’t come expecting a Ritz Cartlon in New York! You ain’t in Napa either! Take a breath and get ready to enjoy the country! Our VIP Area is in the rustic ol’ Bankersmith Dance Hall. This is a little place, population 0, with lot’s of Texas character (AND characters). We have about a half a dozen local artists and bands playing throughout Saturday and will have a small, fun kids area for the kids! It will be HOT, Hot as Hades, and just like most Texas Dance Halls (from Luckenbach to Gruene) we have NATURAL HVAC and air conditioning. What’s that? A Hill Country Breeze and Ice Cold Beer. That’s it. So come prepared. Dress appropriately. It’s going to be hot, hot and hot! I’m saying HOT.

We have made changes to help us meet social distancing requirements, and we ask for your understanding. Bankersmith Texas will be open all weekend. That said, we will hold the food service, the VIP Cheese portion of the event from 4PM until 8PM on Saturday.
