Celebrate Comanche leader Quanah Parker on Quanah Parker Day!

Comanche leader Quanah Parker will always be remembered for his loyalty and leadership in perhaps one of the most pivotal times in American history.  His character and accomplishments will now be celebrated with the passing of state legislation for the second Saturday in September to be known as Quanah Parker Day.  The Official Delegation of the Comanche Nation is coming to Quitaque and Caprock Canyons State Park to celebrate the first Quanah Parker Day in Texas.  Join us and the Comanche Delegation to honor this amazing man of history in the park landscape where he once called home and where the bison he knew and loved still reside.  All festivities for this event are sponsored by My Comancheria Institute.


*Official Welcome Reception at the Tri-County Building in Quitaque at 2:00 p.m.

*Official Welcome Celebration at the Interpretive Amphitheater of Caprock Canyons State Park at 3:00 p.m.
