Everything’s bigger in Texas and that holds true during Charro Days, our seven day bi-national festival. Born to lift community spirits during difficult times, the Charro Days Fiesta arrives in 2017 celebrating their 80th Anniversary with the same dedication to bi-national friendship and respect for traditions that first captivated Brownsville 80 years ago.
