"The Old Settler's Reunion" is a family-friendly, fun filled event that started over 100 years ago when locals would arrive to town by a horse and buggy. 

The event has now become a bit more modern with carnival rides, games, vendors, and food! You can have some fun on the midway with affordable pricing of just 50 cents per person!! 

This year, the event will take place August 1st-4th at the Gov. Jim Hogg City Park in Quitman, TX. 

Each night cash prizes are awarded to the "oldest settler, youngest settler, longest hitched, and newly hitched"
