Warm & Fuzzy New Event

  Calling all dog and wine lovers… Have we got a fun time planned for you!  A first-ever river city happening, “Red River Wags & Wine” is slated for July 29 in Brandenburg Park.  The inaugural event is a fundraiser for the “Mountain Bark Park,” a fenced-in park where locals and guests can bring their dogs to exercise and play safely, leash free.  With over a dozen pet friendly lodges to accommodate them, many of our visitors are coming to town with their beloved pets. The new addition is expected to be located at the east end of town adjacent to the Library. Brandenburg Park’s gates open at 10...

Dulcimer Festival

  Come August 4-5, Red River will be swarming with dulcimer players coming to learn, listen, and have a good time playing music at the Red River Community House. Be prepared to see and hear the beauty of the sounds of the hammered and mountain dulcimers, as well as the dulcet tones of other acoustic instruments such as the autoharp, guitar, mandolin, banjo, and harp. While the hammered dulcimer is the forerunner of the piano and dates back to early Biblical times, the mountain dulcimer can be considered a traditional American instrument.  It was developed in the Appalachian Mountains, probably from the zither family. Performing and teaching will be...

On the Red River Highway

  The 22nd Red River Classic Car Show is set for June 2-3, in downtown Brandenburg Park. The weekend includes live music with Kerry Pastine & the Crime Scene, hula hoop contests, bubble gum-blowing contests, a Glow Ride Showcase around the park and the centerpiece of the event, the all-day Show & Shine on Saturday! The first Red River Car show was on Father’s Day in early June of 1996, just a few weeks after the Hondo Fire that saw the town evacuated on Cinco de Mayo, May 5. In addition to being a great idea, the show helped return the unsettled townfolk to normal. Organizers of that first...
