Attention Visitors:   Sixth Avenue is a part of Route 66 through town, and is the historic San Jacinto District in Amarillo.  It is about 20 blocks west of downtown Amarillo with thriving businesses, restaurants, bars, antique shops, tattoo parlors, etc.  Locals call it "6th Street", and it is just a few blocks north of the Ambassador Hotel & the Galleries At Sunset Center.  Our part for the festival will be blocked off to traffic from McMasters/Georgia St. (McMasters runs north, Georgia runs south at that intersection) for 10 blocks to accommodate foot traffic, the Car & Motorcycle Show & the Bandstand.

The six restaurants participating in the " TASTE OF TEXAS " Route 66 Festival on 6th Avenue are:
Cowboy Gelato, Dolly's Diner, Golden Light Cafe, Smokey Joe's, Wild Bill's Fill'n Station, The 806 and the Moe Dogs GrillAll are located on Historic (6th Ave) Route 66 in Amarillo Texas. Wristbands are required to participate in the Taste of Texas Route 66 and are available at the participating restaurants and other businesses on the Route for $5.00 each. The wristband lets you purchase the participating restaurants "Route 66 Menu Item" at the 1966 price!
