Local MC/DJ for the event will be Plainview's own Dimas Garcia and sound will be provided by Robert Garza, also of Plainview.

In addition to live music, the event will also feature vendors selling food and other items, raffles, volleyball tournament and bounce houses for the kids.

The event is organized by West Texas Tejano/Conjunto Group and TLL Talent. Local sponsors as of now, include Lupe Ruiz, Los Charros, Old Mexico, Furniture Décor & More, TTL Talent and City of Plainview.

"My main purpose for putting this event together is to bring this and surrounding communities together regardless of race and just enjoy a day of fun and entertainment," says Sanchez.

WTTCG's mission is to unite our tejano/conjunto music lovers across the United States and around the world, by promoting and introducing our music and culture as well as bringing unity to our community and music industry as well as promoting up and coming artists and bring us together with the great sounds of our music regardless of race.
