REFUGIO – Los Amigos de Nuestra Señora Del Refugio will present the first of what will be an annual Texas Tortilla Festival, said organizer Jennifer Ragle.

The festival will occur the third weekend of October this fall. 

The festival plans to feature “Everything Tortilla” as well as showcase south Texas culture with music, art, presentations and food.

The festival will serve as the primary fundraiser for the local nonprofit, that has plans to build an interpretation of Nuestra Señora Del Refugio, the last Spanish mission built in Texas.

The mission was located near present-day Our Lady of Refuge Catholic Church.

A portion of this year’s proceeds will be donated locally for the continued efforts to rebuild and restore after Hurricane Harvey.
