about

Agave Festival Marfa is an annual festival celebrating the agave and its influence on culture through food, film, music and science. The Festival treats the agave as the indicator species for a region that is binational, multilingual, and deeply informed by indigenous history. It brings communities together through outstanding free and accessible  programming including talks by preeminent historians, botanists, artists, anthropologists and archaeologists. Films, exhibitions, and tastings with agave spirit producers as well as unforgettable dining experiences are offered to everyone. Performances by leading artists in contemporary and regional music add dimension to the lively 5-day event.
