Things To Do in Kingsville
From the National Professional Bull Riders Rodeo to the annual Festival de la Lotería; sip your way through the unique downtown shops during one of the many Monthly Main Street Wine Walks and kick off the holiday season during the Ranch Hand Weekend festivities.
Ranch Hand Weekend is always the weekend before Thanksgiving. The Butterfly Blitz is the perfect time to spot Monarch Butterflies and experience a Monarch release. The event provides education and fun in Dick Kleberg Park. It pairs nicely with a Winged Wonder on the legendary King Ranch!
Kingsville has an abundance of history and art and when you visit the Barraza Fine Art Gallery, you’ll also get to see a remodeled Greek Revival Style home. The Ben Bailey Art Gallery is another great stop for art aficionados, and the Kingsville Symphony Orchestra performs multiple times throughout the year. While on the Texas A&M University-Kingsville campus, visit the John E. Conner Museum and explore the interactive ‘En Mi Familia’ exhibit featuring famed Chicana Artist Carmen Lomas Garza and get an up-close look at Kingsville’s own World Champion Boxer ‘Lil Oscar Cantu’s championship belts. Explore the Graves Peeler Hall of Horns at the museum, which also features temporary exhibits throughout the year. The Conner Museum is free and open to the public Tuesday through Saturday with a number of free educational events throughout the year.
The 18-hole golf course is the perfect backdrop for a day on the greens. Visitors go there just to spot the abundant wildlife and enjoy the nine ponds and plentiful mesquite trees that signal you are spending the day in South Texas. Visit Dick Kleberg Park, the 186-acre park with a butterfly and hummingbird garden, a wildlife outlook, and many opportunities for birding or fishing along Escondido Creek. Your furry-legged friends will enjoy a jaunt at the Vishal Raju Bhagat Memorial Dog Park complete with an obstacle course, water fountains, and benches. Another popular park in Kingsville is Flores Park where kids enjoy cooling off at the Splash Pad during the summer months.
