The city of Tomball announced in November the creation of a new festival celebrating the music of the Beatles and Volkswagen Beetle vehicles. Titled “Fab Fest,” the festival will debut on Sept. 15, 2018, Marketing Director Mike Baxter said.
The festival will include live music, vendors selling Beatles-themed merchandise, Greater Houston area craft breweries and the city’s annual Volkswagen Beetle car show presented by the North Houston Volkswagen Club, he said.
Additional details may be released closer to the festival date, as the festival is a work in progress.
“There will be multiple bands performing music by The Beatles in a variety of formats. The ‘Fab 5’ will headline the show,” Baxter said. “We’re basically revamping the long-running Beetles, Brew & Barbecue festival and adding the new Beatles theme.”
Beetles, Brew & Barbecue is Tomball’s Oktoberfest-style festival.
Fab Fest will follow the city’s annual Freight Train Food Truck Festival as the newest event in town.
As of Nov. 6, the city of Tomball has welcomed 62,000 guests during the 2017 festival season. Baxter said the city is on target to hit 70,000 total guests in 2017 with attendance at its final festival for the year, Christmas on Commerce set for Dec. 9.
