The City of Victoria has canceled Bootfest 2020 following many weeks of extensive consideration.

As a result of ongoing concern over the spread of COVID-19, City staff determined the event could not be held in a manner that ensured the health and safety of event attendees, staff, sponsors, volunteers, vendors and entertainers. 

“We would have enjoyed another festival, and our staff has been working hard to make this year even better than past festivals,” City Manager Jesús Garza said. “However, with the ongoing pandemic, this decision is the only responsible option.”

Each year, several thousand residents and visitors gather in downtown Victoria to experience Bootfest’s western-themed activities and live music. Attendees also have an opportunity to shop at a wide variety of merchant booths and enjoy foods from an array of vendors.  

Bootfest is Victoria’s largest free festival, and this year’s event would have been the 10th annual celebration. 

The City anticipates the return of Bootfest in 2021 and will continue working on its plans to host the event when it can be held in a safe and healthy environment.
