The annual Tejano Conjunto Festival is the longest-running Conjunto Festival in the country and is internationally recognized as the most influential event for this beloved and popular Texas musical tradition. The highlight of the 40th Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival is the opportunity to hear the very best in Conjunto music from all across the many different styles played in Texas.

In addition to the live music and dancing, the festival will feature a symposium about the history, development, and future of Conjunto music, and a film festival highlighting four decades of classic filmmaking about the music, the musicians, and the culture. There will also be a gathering of living Conjunto Music Hall of Fame musicians, as well as new inductions into the Hall of Fame.

Conjunto is a unique form of Texas-Mexican, or Tejano, music that utilizes the German button accordion and Spanish/Mexican bajo sexto guitar as its principal instruments. A hybrid border tradition that is now over 100 years old, Tejanos have created an original American musical ensemble and style of music that combines European polkas and waltzes with indigenous huapangos and African-influenced Colombian cumbias, boleros, country music, blues, rock and jazz.
