Put on your boots and hold on to your cowboy hats - we are bringing Barkus back home to celebrate Texas. What's so special about Texas? EVERYTHING! So, on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2024, we are going to celebrate that to the fullest because there is no place on earth quite like this State. Moreover, the theme for 2024 will be "Barkus Salutes The Lone Star State" - celebrating the history, culture, cuisine, and crazy characters of TEXAS. And don't forget the Texas State Fair! Let's do Barkus big - the Texas way!
