Agave Festival Marfa celebrates the cultural diversity of the Trans-Pecos and Chihuahuan Desert region. This year's inaugural festival includes talks by leading scientists in the fields of anthropology, archeology, and botany; borderlands-inspired and pre-Conquest menus from local chefs; an after-dark pool party with a cumbia soundtrack; and a performance by a legend of Norteño Music, Polo Urias Y Su Maquina Norteña.

We want a truly cultural festival, one that can speak to the diverse cultures of our area and involve art, ecology, food, drink, music and dancing.
— Tim Johnson, Festival Organizer
