What to Expect

PantegoFest includes activities to draw families from outside of the immediate area as well as involve local businesses and talent while stressing the small-town feel. A perfect example is the pie baking contest. Local Business owners Liz and Sal Kolic at Saljo's Pizza had the idea to put together, they thought, "a Pie baking contest certainly embodies small town." As for the Chili Cook-off, the Pantego Lion's Club is acting as host and is benefiting from the proceeds. The pet parade was the idea of local business owner of All Paws Grooming.  

There are a couple of VERY notable differences this year. The most important is that admittance is free with small fees for some children's activities. 

The opening band is Morgan Shine, a young local artist and the headliner for Friday night is the well known disco band: Le Freak.  

Early Saturday will be a schedule full of local live entertainment. Opening the day on the stage will be a high energy group work-out by Texas Fitt, then lead into a local band - The Uptown Drifters (in which band member Jim Turner is a local vet at Farrell Animal Hospital), Joker's Edge, the PCA High School Jazz band and local dance Studio United Dance. Saturday then leads into Classic Rock Tribute bands with Incognito as the Headliner.  Incognito considers themselves "arena rock" and play songs that everyone knows.  

Sunday's stage features local dance groups and entertainers with the Beatles Tribute band: Me and My Monkey finishing off the festival. 

Pantego's History

Pantego was named by a settler named Colonel Foscue. Tradition holds that Colonel Foscue had a loyal and trusted Indian friend named Pantego.  When fellow tribesmen were moving to Indian Territory, present day Oklahoma, Indians stopped at the Foscue plantation and demanded that Pantego accompany them.  Pantego refused and was murdered on the spot, supposedly by hanging.  He and his wife and family were supposedly buried on Briarwood Hill or in the Westbury Square area.

For More Information

Checkout www.pantegofest.com for full activity schedule, volunteer and vendor information. Parking is available in the Chase Bank parking lot off of Bowen Road, then guests can cross Milby to enter into the festival.

Pantego Fest is highlighting local business by having a free "Shop Pantego" bag for the first 500 guests.  The bag will have information or goodies from local businesses and the Economic Development Council will have a tent available for guests to stop by and learn more about some of the 400 businesses in Pantego.
