Historic Granbury Merchants Association
Granbury, Texas

RE:  Historic Granbury Merchants Association Announces Cancellation of the 42nd General Granbury’s Birthday Celebration and Festival.

The Board of Directors of the HGMA voted late yesterday to cancel its 42nd General Granbury’s Birthday Celebration & Parade to be held next weekend March 21 & 22.  This decision was made with due consideration of the current CDC Health Directives and proclamations by President Trump and Governor Abbott and in coordination with the City of Granbury.  The City announced late last week they would be closing all City offices and services, other than essential services.  Partnering with the City is essential to host a successful festival and the HGMA strives not only to be sensitive to the health issues throughout our Nation and potentially our Community, and value our long standing relationships with our civic and municipal leaders.  

“Though regrettable for all our merchants, vendors, regular patrons and tourists of this very popular annual BBQ Cookoff event, it is in the end, the right thing to do!”, stated Ken Hackett, President.

Notices will go out today to all our vendors and cookers, and refunds will be mailed out promptly.  Should there be any questions, please direct them to:, or Michelle Winters @ 682.936.4550 or Ken Hackett @ 817.776.7784.
