What's Shivaree?

Shivaree is an annual summer festival in Gatesville, Spur Capital of Texas.

Gatesville is turning 150!  On August 3rd, 1870, the City of Gatesville was incorporated by the State of Texas. In 2020, Shivaree partners with the City of Gatesville as part of a year-long celebration of the City and the Community!

Join us in Gatesville throughout 2020 as we mark the 150th anniversary of the City of Gatesville with a series of community events to celebrate the people, places, and happenings that have shaped this community over the last one hundred and fifty years!
