Texas Gatorfest

The Texas Gatorfest is an annual celebration of the American Alligator in Texas. Held at the beautiful Fort Anahuac Park in Chambers County, this festival is simply a good time. Anahuac is the Alligator Capital of Texas, and every year we prove it with our family friendly music and entertainment festival.

Texas Parks and Wildlife are a big part of the Texas Gatorfest each year and has several areas around the park with live alligators for the public to learn about the animals and their habitat safely.


Each year Texas Gatorfest provides live entertainment on the Beer Garden Stage and runs from Friday’s opening through Sunday’s gate closing.



Texas Gatorfest began the Classic Car Show in 2014 for registrants to display their vehicles and win prizes for a variety of categories and is open to spectators.




Texas Gatorfest has a wide array of Food Vendors with menus ranging from kabobs to just about anything you’d want on a stick!






The Gatorfest Carnival & Petting Zoo is loaded with fun for the kids and adults alike with exotic animals, carnival rides, face painting, clowns, stilt-walkers and, most of all, Swamper and Sugar Belle!








The Gatorfest’s Great Texas Alligator Roundup is held annually and open to all licensed alligator hunters.  Spectators can view the incoming catches at the weigh-in area. The Gatorfest Pageant winners pose with the winning gator.










Merchant Vendors have a wide choice of wares for the Gatorfest patron’s shopping enjoyment.
