Rooster Fest 2021

August 6, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - August 7, 2021 @ 11:00 pm


Rooster Fest 2021

Rooster Fest was an idea sparked by the Red Dirt Roosters and the Silver Spur Resort of Canton, TX as a way to showcase the premier talent of East Texas in the wake of the recent pandemic as well as join together as a community and give a little back as well. This festival will be unlike anything East Texas has seen with a huge lineup of East Texas musicians, a wide range of activities, and fun for the whole family to enjoy!

5k Heart Walk Fun Run at Rooster Fest 2021

5K Walk/Run for Charity

We mentioned giving back as well…The Rooster Family has HUGE hearts. They have to, because their littlest rooster Logan, son of Red Dirt Roosters banjo player Jordan, was only born with half a heart. So they want to give back to an organization that has made tremendous efforts into the research of the different congenital heart diseases that affect so many children. Not only are we donating 10% of the festival proceeds to the Children’s Heart Foundation, but we are also holding a 5k heart walk/run the morning of August 7th at 9 am with 100% of the proceeds of the race going to the Children’s Heart Foundation and medals and prizes for the winners of each respective category of entry. Registration for the 5k race will begin at 8 am and registration is $20. ALL race proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Heart Foundation.
