It is through the community support of Lonesome Dove Fest each year that allows the Karnes City Rotary Club to fund scholarships for Karnes County high school students and contribute to many more worthwhile community efforts. The annual event happens at the Karnes County Youth Show Barn Grounds on U.S. Highway 181 between Karnes City and Kenedy just north of Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital.
