Buddy's Birthday Bash will celebrate Buddy Holly's birthday on Monday, September 7th, 2020 at the Buddy Holly Center, located at 1801 Crickets Avenue in Lubbock.

This is a great big day and a free event. It's really nice to have something special to do on Labor Day that the whole family will love. This kid-friendly event keeps the celebration safe and socially distanced and has some wonderful art you can take home to make with the kids.

Giving you plenty of time to make a batch of pancakes before you head over, the party rolls out at 10 a.m. and take you right on through the day before wrapping up at 5 p.m.

There will be plenty for everyone to do including an exciting screening of Buddy Holly's life story. There will be a special screening of the documentary 'Rave On'. 'Rave On' is the incredible documentary of Buddy Holly's life and achievements. See the video below.

Take the celebration to the next level and dress up like Buddy Holly. Have fun with this and ask about the free magnets at the party. A craft project can be just the thing to bring the family together and you won't want to miss the very special take and make craft project at this great event.

Due to health and safety concerns, there will be no tours. A virtual tour of the J.I. Allison House, however, will be available. You can see more about Allison, the famous drummer of The Crickets, here.
