Bob Wills Day

Bob Wills Day is celebrated usually the last Saturday of April in the Town of Turkey, TX. This year would have been the 50th year celebrating Bob Wills Day. Due to COVID-19 the committee has decided to postpone it until 2022 so they can celebrate it in a way that Bob Wills would be proud of. During this weekend, people come from all over the world to celebrate the King of Western Swing, Bob Wills. Some people start to descend on Turkey as early as a week before to take in all of the pre-celebration preparations, and just enjoy the laid-back, easy-going lifestyle of this tiny panhandle town.

Activites to Expect

Western Swing Music, Concerts, Dances, Parade, BBQ Lunch, Old Fiddler's Contest, Arts & Crafts Booths, Food Vendors, Bob Wills Museum, BBQ Cook-Off, and lots of great friendly folks.
