11TH ANNUAL TEXAS REDS STEAK & GRAPE FESTIVAL
TO FEATURE MORE WINE & MORE STEAK
ON SEPTEMBER 22-24 IN HISTORIC DOWNTOWN BRYAN
BRYAN, TX: Grills will sizzle! Wines will pour! And music will flow down the streets of Downtown Bryan, Texas during the 11th annual Texas Reds Steak & Grape Festival on Friday – Sunday, September 22-24, 2017. Texas Reds is generously sponsored by City of Bryan and Bryan Texas Utilities.
Attracting visitors from across Texas and beyond, this year’s festival will feature over 25 of the Lone Star State’s most popular wineries as well as craft beer breweries, live music, a steak cook-off, artisans, food vendors, and the popular Kids Zone. The Saturday night steak dinner, which has sold out for two consecutive years, will return thanks to a partnership with J. Cody’s Steaks and Barbecue. Also returning this year, the Sunday morning steak and egg brunch, another popular event which sold out last year.
Festival Coordinator Amanda Reynolds hints at new features which may be added this year. “Stay tuned! We are working on some other exciting new things based on feedback we received last year. For example, we are looking closely at the possibility of expanding the steak cook-off and there may be a “Primetime Wine” event in the works for Saturday night. We are exploring a number of ideas which we think the crowd will enjoy.”
Bryan Mayor Andrew Nelson states, “Texas Reds has a great impact on Bryan’s economy. The festival is a cornerstone event for our City – specifically our fast-growing and beloved downtown community. We have data that shows festival attendance is comprised of visitors from across over 105 different Texas counties and 17 states. Our City looks forward to showing festival visitors our Bryan hospitality during their visit this September.”
Sandy Farris, executive director of the Downtown Bryan Association, states, “Our festival continues to grow every year. Our team has been working feverishly to make this year’s Texas Reds our best yet! It will be filled with sweet and savory highlights whether you’re sipping offerings in the wine tent, enjoying a steak dinner with all the fixins or starting your Sunday off with an incredible brunch. We only ask that Texas Reds fans start sending out positive vibes now for excellent weather for September 22-24!”
