Head to Port Aransas for music festivals, sand sculptures and more
Looking to fill your fall with fun, live music? You’ll want to head to Port Aransas, home to the Port A Live Music Festival September 17-19 and Texas sandfest October 15-17.
In September, listen to a variety of bands that span genres and generations as they perform in unique venues across the city. Port Aransas being only six or seven hours from Dallas, it is easy to make this a long weekend.
Jimmy Buffet’s world-famous cover band the Landsharks kick off on Friday, followed by DJs, solo artists and even karaoke over the next three days.
And did we mention that there is a Taco & Margarita Trail? Just $ 7 gets you a margarita sample and a street taco at participating local bars and restaurants, and you could even win a prize if you score every trail stop in the Visit Port Aransas app.
If you’re looking to get away from it all in October, now is the perfect time for Texas SandFest. The largest native sand sculpting competition in the United States annually draws renowned sand sculptors and tens of thousands of visitors from around the world to Port Aransas.
It not only includes amazing sand sculptures, but also food, live music, activities for kids, arts and crafts shopping, clothing, jewelry, furniture, souvenirs and more. Moreover. Texas SandFest gives back by raising money for local charities and scholarships for high school students.
