Share Your Story: Texas International Pop Festival

Event to be held on April 30.
Post Date:April 19, 2019

Labor Day weekend 1969, just two weeks after Woodstock, Lewisville was the location of one of the largest music events Texas had ever seen, The Texas International Pop Festival.

The event drew more than 100,000 music fans, including more than a fair share of colorfully dressed hippies that sparked a bit of controversy among the locals, for three days of live entertainment at the former Dallas International Motor Speedway and a smaller free stage on the shores of Lewisville Lake.

The Texas International Pop Festival featured such performers as Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Santana, Sly & the Family Stone, Canned Heat, Chicago Transit Authority, and more.

Did you attend the festival? On Tuesday, April 30, 7 p.m., Lewisville looks back at this historic event by inviting individuals to come and share their stories from the festival. Join us at Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street, to view original fan footage and share your memories with us on camera. If you have any souvenirs from that festival, you are encouraged to bring them to this event. We'd love to see your photos, ticket stubs, home movies, and more.

No registration is required, but attendees are asked to RSVP by calling Community Outreach Specialist Kent Boring at 972.219.3740 or by email at kboring@cityoflewisville.com. If someone has a story to tell, but can’t make the meeting, the CVB would still like to hear from them. In that case, please call or email Kent Boring and special arrangements can be made to document their story.

To reach MCL Grand from Interstate 35E, take exit 452 and proceed east on Main Street to Charles Street. MCL Grand will be on the left. Free public parking is available along Main and Church streets, or at Lewisville City Hall across Church Street from the center.
