McAllen is among the cities of Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas, just to name a few of the 30 most glorified cities, to receive the official Music Friendly Community designation in the great state of Texas, and the first city to receive the designation in the Rio Grande Valley!
As a Music Friendly Community, McAllen is fostering a music scene that will reflect the vibrant and diverse heritage of the RGV.
“Being designated a Music Friendly City acknowledges the many opportunities available for live music in the city and shows support for local artists and venues. The City of McAllen encouraged such entertainment as seen in various outdoor events held throughout the year,” said Commissioner Omar Quintanilla, District 3.
“The City of McAllen is very proud to have earned the designation as a Music Friendly Community and we strongly believe it only reinforces what we know to be true, that music is a big part of our community, culture, and lifestyle,” said Commissioner Seby Haddad, District 5. “The City works hard to make music an integral part of all its events and we are very proud of the ongoing efforts and support provided by the McAllen Chamber of Commerce towards local musicians and the live music scene. This designation will help promote the incredible musical talent and artists in our City.”
The event will be held on April 7, from 8 pm to 10 pm at the McAllen Food Truck Park, 10 N. Broadway, which will feature performances by Two Old Dudes – The TOD Show and the CAS Band.
