October 22nd. Spoken Word Poetry Festival!

Craft Cultura and the City of Edinburg are teaming up and excited to announce Edinburg’s first Spoken Word Poetry Festival, Untamed Tongues: Poets Sin Fronteras. This poetry festival celebrates our Mexican American culture on the South Texas borderlands. We explore our past, present, and future as a community through the art of storytelling.

Join us for a night full of art and cultura at the McIntyre Promenade Courtyard (415 W. University Dr.) on Friday, October 22nd from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Celebrate life on the borderlands as an array of poets from different regions of the Valley perform their original poems for the first time.

Bring the entire family out for some tasty food, drinks, live music, vendors, and even a lowrider display. Music will be curated by Rio Grande Valley artists DJ Flacucho, Fronterawave, and Genesis, with a special performance by San Antonio Hip Hop Emcee, MexStep.

This event is free and open to the public. UTRGV students, bring your College I.D. to get a discount on drinks. Parking will be available at City Hall.
