The Charreada is an event established as a UTRGV tradition in 2016 to celebrate Charro Days, Sombrero Festival and Mr. Amigo festivities The week-long fiesta takes place during the last week of February and celebrates friendship between the sister cities of Brownsville and Matamoros. Since the 1960’s, the university campus has been one of the stops to welcome Mr. Amigo. In 2017, UTRGV partnered with Texas Southmost College (TSC) to share and collaborate in the celebration together to welcome Mr. Amigo. Please join us for festivities.
