As President of the 120th Washington’s Birthday Celebration Association, it gives me great pleasure in welcoming you to this year’s festivities. This one-of-a kind Celebration is one of the region’s oldest festivals, which gives Laredo and Webb County notoriety both nationally and internationally.  
Each year we invite friends and visitors from across the United States and Mexico to join the City of Laredo and the County of Webb as we celebrate our first President of the United States, George Washington. 
This organization is made up of volunteers and director volunteers that have dedicated their time to improving the quality of life for the people of Laredo. These volunteers along with a hard working staff and many generous sponsors make the Washington’s Birthday Celebration a spectacular festival with 28 events in 33 days, which truly makes it “A Celebration with Something for Everyone”!

“I personally invite you to discover what Laredo has to offer this upcoming 120th Celebration beginning January 19th through February 20th and get your party on!”

2016-2017 President
