What sets Troubadour Festival apart from the rest? For starters, it proudly holds the title of being the largest barbecue and country music festival in the great state of Texas. With two exciting locations in Celina and in College Station, this festival truly embodies the spirit of Texas hospitality and entertainment.

In Celina, festival-goers will be treated to the picturesque backdrop of Old Celina Park, where over 40 renowned barbecue joints will showcase their culinary skills alongside an impressive stage setup. Meanwhile, at Texas A&M's Aggie Park, attendees can enjoy the lush surroundings and towering trees as they indulge in offerings from 35 of the state's finest BBQ establishments, all while soaking in the electrifying atmosphere near the iconic Kyle Field.

With live performances happening on two stages for nearly 12 hours, attendees are in for an unforgettable musical experience that perfectly complements the delectable barbecue offerings.
