The Texas Rattlesnake Festival was started as a means to an end, with a long term goal to see the end of the rattlesnake roundups as they currently exist. Our desire is to end the torture, slaughter and abuse that occurs at the present day roundups. It is not our goal to hurt the local economies but to reform the roundups into educational events.
As we grow and hopefully become more financially independent, our goals are to support more organizations involved in the preservation of key lands and to support non-profits working with these magnificent animals.
The Texas Rattlesnake Festival will always act in the best interest of the rattlesnakes. Their survival and preservation is key to a balanced and healthy ecosystem.
