If you plan to visit Lubbock in September, there are two major events to be aware of. Both the annual Buddy Holly Festival and the annual National Cowboy Symposium and Celebration take place during this month. It’s a great time to be in town if you enjoy plenty of festivities, including music, art, cowboy poetry and stories, a chuckwagon cookoff, and a horse parade. But you can also expect larger crowds and more expensive accommodations. Also, you will need to make your reservations well in advance during this month.
Another event to keep in mind is the Independence Day festival on July 4. The free event is one of the largest free festivals in Texas . Again, there is fun to be had thanks to the parade, street fair, food stalls, live bands, and fireworks. But there are also larger crowds and more competition to secure a hotel room.
Be aware that on Texas Tech home football weekends, the city's hotels fill to overflowing. It is advised if coming in the fall that you book reservations well in advance.
