Join us for Barbacoa Cosmicoa, a pig roast and community dinner on Saturday night. Chef Lou Lambert will roast several pigs onsite and we'll enjoy the feast with all the fixins and a bunch of sides - a vegetarian option is also available.
Food vendors will be onsite on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, and some breakfast options will be available each day. We will also have an area set up with a few communal grills if you'd prefer to bring your own foodstuffs. You supply the charcoal.
No outside alcohol is allowed at El Cosmico. We will have plenty of beer, wine and other beverages for sale throughout the event. And of course we'll have plenty of free Topo Chico to quench your high plains desert thirst.
El Cosmico Provision Co. Yeti & Shiner
We've partnered with YETI, the makers of the best cooler on earth, to create a custom El Cosmico YETI cooler. Available in two sizes: the Tundra 45, with a 26 can capacity and easy portability, and the Tundra 65, the ice chest designed for good times with room to hold 39 cans.
Have a cooler full of ice cold Shiner beer waiting for you when you check-in at the Trans-Pecos Festival - enjoy your portable party-in-a-box throughout the weekend, and then take home an awesome souvenir.
Tundra 45 with 12 Shiner beers $375
Tundra 65 with 24 Shiner beers $420
Feed your hangover, enjoy live music and hang out one last time with your festival family before heading home. Support a great cause at our KRTS Breakfast Revival on Sunday, September 25 from 9 am to noon. All proceeds benefit KRTS Marfa Public Radio - cost is $20 per person - no need to pre-register, just pay when you arrive at breakfast.
Activities will abound at this year’s party. Make something, root for your team, buy a souvenir for a friend.
EL BEISBOL SANDLOT: Austin’s Texas Playboys vs. Marfa’s Los Yonke Gallos. An epic sandlot baseball rivalry continues. Saturday at noon. Hot dogs. Beer. Squirrel Friends. Can only be experienced - definitely a party highlight regardless of your stance on sports.
EL COSMETICO: Back by popular demand. Just because you are camping doesn’t mean you don’t need a massage. Check back soon for advance online booking of your transformative treatments.
AND MORE: Shop our vendor area, hang out and listen to an afternoon DJ, or just spend some time in our hammock grove. We've got a solid mix of activities and opportunities to do absolutely nothing.
SISTER TEMPERANCE TAROT: Sister Temperance offers in-depth spiritual readings, and the experience is not about getting easy answers or entertainment, one should be prepared to hear the truth, and to step up and do the work with her to bring you to your highest good. She has been the resident card reader at Hotel San José and is looking forward to offering her unique divinatory services to those attending the Trans-Pecos Festival.
We're excited to announce that we've partnered with RISE, the next generation of air travel. Thanks to our friends at RISE, we would like to offer private jet service to the 2016 Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love in Marfa, Texas. We're currently looking into offering private flights from Austin, New York and Los Angeles. If you are interested in leaving on a jet plane, tell us a little bit about your trip and we'll get in touch to hammer out the details. Let's fly.
