The Great Texas Alligator Roundup, the premier event of Gatorfest, invites exas alligator hunters to bring in their "harvest" to compete for cash prizes. The festival coincides with the opening of the 20 day alligator season in Texas and the Roundup sees an average of 10% of the alligators harvested from the wild in Texas annually. Previous years' winners have been over 13 feet long! The Alligator Education Tent, where government and private organizations that deal with the alligator and its wetlands habitat, along with the live alligator displays throughout the festival provided by Texas Parks and Wildlife and specialty vendors offering alligator products, combine with the Roundup to give guests a rare opportunity for an "up close and personal" look at this fascinating reptile.
There are four stages of continuous entertainment along with a variety of walkaround entertainers to keep guest amused. Our entertainment is as varied as our guests, from rock & roll to country & western to zydeco to rhythm & blues, folk or gospel. Street dances are held Friday and Saturday nights in front of the stage located in the beer garden. Friday night's headliner is Eli Young while Saturday's entertainment includes Micky and the Motor Cars and headliners Cory Morrow and Roger Creager, with Bayou Roux and Wayne Toups closing the show on Sunday.
