Barbacoa Cosmicoa

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. 

BUY DINNER

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.

Breakfast Revival

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. 

Do Stuff

Activities will abound at this year’s party. Make something, root for your team, buy a souvenir for a friend.

WORKSHOPS: Learn a new talent at one of the many workshops available during the festival. See the list and sign up here - check back often as new workshops are being added.

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.

VOLUNTEER: Looking to volunteer for the 2016 Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love in exchange for music and camping tickets? Tell us a little more about yourself and your journey. We have limited space for volunteers but we'll do our best to put you to work.
