The Bob Wills Foundation was established in 1971 to preserve and share the music and life of Bob Wills as a unique and central figure in American history and as a beloved son of Turkey, Texas.
The foundation promptly began planning the first Bob Wills Day event which was held in 1971. The celebration has been held on the last Saturday of April every year since.*
The fifty-first Bob Wills Day Celebration will be held the last Saturday in April of 2022. The event will be held April 27, 28 & 29.
*In 2020, the celebration was rescheduled for October 10, 2020 and the event was cancelled in 2021
