Turkey Fest is the spring family-oriented festival in North Texas! Turkey Fest attracted 6,000 festival goers in 2019. We love to see our fest grow! Our team of volunteers loves this annual event. We see the positive impact on our community, our economy and the Henrietta and Clay County Chamber.
Turkey Fest is not just for hunters – it’s for the whole family. We make sure that we have activities for everyone and every budget. Plus, coming to the fest is free and there are plenty of free children’s activities to keep the kids occupied!
There’s family activity all around, including a variety of vendors, kids corner, a cook-off, pie-eating contest, Cornhole Tournament, Scholarship Barrel Race, pro teams and amateur hunters bring their final harvest in to be scored by the Texas Game Warden.
