Texas is known as cattle country, but it’s also America’s fifth largest producer of grapes and wine. For the past seven years, residents and tourists have descended on the streets of Downtown Bryan to commemorate both at the Texas Reds Steak and Grape Festival. The event offers tastings of hand-selected Texas wines from Rieslings to Cabernets and even a few fruit wines. To pair with the wine selections, steak will be the main attraction at local downtown eateries that will serve a dish unique to their cuisine. The festival kicks off on Saturday, September 27, 2014, and runs through Sunday, September 28. There will also be five stages of music during the event. For two days, there will be more than 30 local and regional bands playing a variety of music from gospel to rock to country. There’s plenty of opportunities to volunteer, from helping out bands backstage to staffing the Kids Zone, there’s a place for everyone! We will also be happy to verify your volunteer hours so you can receive community service credit, just make sure you bring your paperwork when you check-in.
