There are some places that just feel different whenever you take the time to visit them. Alvin offers several community events that attract residents and visitors while keeping old traditions alive and even making new ones. One event that has been a tradition for years is Alvin Frontier days. Presented by Alvin Rotary Club, this is a weekend filled with western gunslingers, barn dances, and carnival rides. Another event that has become a new tradition with the community is the Alvin Music Festival & Cook-off. This event is presented by the Sunrise Rotary Club and draws thousands of people for great music, IBCA sanctioned cook-off, kid’s activities, food vendors, cornhole tournament, and beer garden. It is a great way to experience Southeast Texas culture through food and music! Profits from both events go to each organization’s scholarships or back to the community through their service projects. Just another reason to love Alvin!
