Held annually the first weekend in June, Yoakum's Tom Tom Festival is piece of a history wrapped in some good 'ol Texas fun!

The Tom Tom festival originated to honor Yoakum’s tomato industry, which was predominant in the area in the late 20s - early 30s. This Festival is one of the oldest in the region due to the “down home” style of fun, found only in South Texas. With a craft show, live music, barbeque cook-off, parade, rodeo and a whole lot more, this festival draws thousands each year... and for good reason!

No Admission Fee In Park, No Coolers Allowed
