Pharr and Greater Pharr Chamber of Commerce to Host Inaugural Avocado Festival, SAT 10/21 @ 4 PM 

Pharr, Texas – The City of Pharr, in partnership with the Greater Pharr Chamber of Commerce, is excited to announce the first-ever Avocado Festival.
The celebration is set to take place on Saturday, October 21, 2023, from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM in Downtown Pharr, located at 200 S. Cage Blvd.
We invite the entire community to join us at this brand-new occasion that pays tribute to our thriving Pharr International Bridge, the nation’s leader in importing fresh produce, including berries, tomatoes, pineapple, and, of course, the beloved avocado.
The Avocado Festival is part of our Fresh on the Border line of events and allows the entire community to take part in celebrating and recognizing the monumental achievements of the Pharr International Bridge and the communities it serves.

“We are thrilled to bring another exciting event to our Pharr residents and community,” said Pharr Mayor Ambrosio Hernandez, M.D. “As the nation’s #1 produce importer, the Pharr International Bridge and the produce it imports play a significant and historical role in our city,” he added. “I invite everyone to join us as we kick off our inaugural Avocado Festival for a fun-filled and family-friendly event,” continued Hernandez. “We hope to see you there!”
Get ready to dance the night away with a spectacular performance by a Selena tribute band that will bring the iconic Tex-Mex sounds to life. Test your skills and compete in exciting contests with fantastic prizes up for grabs. Challenge your taste buds with avocado-themed contests and more. Food vendors will line the streets of Downtown Pharr offering a wide range of options.
We are thrilled to offer FREE admission to the Avocado Festival. This event is open to the public, and we welcome everyone to join us for a day of fun and festivities. Media is also invited to cover this event.
Come and join us for a day of live music, delicious food, contests, and, most importantly, a celebration of the avocado! Let’s commemorate the bridge that keeps our community connected and the dedicated people who make it all possible.
