This annual festival celebrates the agave and its influence on culture through food, film, music, science, and spirits. It brings communities together through accessible programming that includes talks by preeminent historians, botanists, artists, anthropologists, and archaeologists. The event offers tastings hosted by agave spirit producers, one-of-a-kind dining experiences, and performances by leading artists in contemporary and regional music.

Inspired by a desire to bring artist-made films usually screened in galleries and museums to viewers in Far West Texas, it has hosted a diverse array of talent, including Harmony Korine, Cat Power, and Larry Clark.
