(CNN) - Sarah Palin says she's "looking forward to heading down to the Lower 48 for some great events," as she speaks in Texas, Virginia, and Georgia over the next week.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee will address the crowd at the Oil Palace in Tyler, Texas, as part of the tourist attraction and entertainment venue's Conservative Voices in America, according to her facebook page and The Oil Palace website.

"Sarah Palin's appearance caps a year of providing a forum for some of the most important Conservative Voices in America," says Oil Palace manager Jim Couch, in a statement on the venue's website.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will also attend, but a campaign spokesman says his appearance is not a political event. Palin has endorsed Perry as he run's this year for re-election for a third full term in office.

The next day Palin addresses the audience at the Freedom Fest 2010, in Norfolk, Virginia. The event, sponsored by a conservative talk radio station, is billed as a "salute to our military and first responders."

"If you're free that day, you can join me, Oliver North, and George Allen at the Ted Constant Convocation Center on the campus of Old Dominion University," says Palin on her facebook page.

On Tuesday, June 29, according to her facebook page, Palin heads to Atlanta for the P.U.R.E. Celebration sponsored by Zachariah's Way at the Gwinnett Arena.

Palin says Zachariah's Way is "a wonderful organization committed to serving our special needs community."

Palin's two-year old son Trig has Down syndrome.

    In the midst of a crisis involving oil she's going to the Oil Palace?

    So she's definitely not trying to be a politician anymore obviously. Bad move on her part.

    I will make sure I attend the event in Norfolk so I can tell her where she can shove her ideas and where she can go for a tan. Since she's a private citizen now, I guess I'm not out of line if I wish for her to sink to the bottom of the Chesapeake. Stay out of Virginia you racist pig.

    It should be considered capital punishment to hear this woman speak, she has the most aggravating voice I have ever heard and to think people pay good money to listen at her nonsense. This country is really going to the dogs.

    Thanks Sarah, your support for Haley as governor in South Carolina has pushed her to the top. Keep up the good work.

    shes pathetic and dumber than a box of rocks...but because repubs feed on her idiotic hate laced ideals, she's laughing all the way to the bank. Heck, she may not even believe most of what shes saying, she has just found that these idiots will make her rich by falling for her nonsense hook, line and sinker.

  12. not all docs play golf

    Palin continuing to be out there just being Palin is the best thing that the Democrats could wish for. She does for the Republican party what the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse photos did for the U.S. winning the hearts and minds of the Muslim world. Keep on spouting your brainless views, Sarah, and you'll keep moderates miles away from the Republican lever in November.

    I wonder what foolishness will fall from this stupid woman's mouth now. But thanks CNN for continually reporting on her. If you didn't we may forget what an idiot she really is and start to embrace her. Before the CONservatives start yelping, no one is afraid of Sarah. We are just amazed at how far stupid can go if it has a pretty face and dull eyes.

  15. once upon a horse

    we already have a moron down here in Texas called Rick Perry who was quoted as saying the BP spill is an "ACT OF GOD"! We sure don't need Sarah Palin down here, but I'm sure she'll draw a crowd here as well. Just hope she's not in the Houston metro area again...I might have to be sure to be out of town if she is.

    Tyler, Tx is so small and unpopulated until they closed down their downtown shopping area, if you want to shop you'll have to go to Louisiana or Dallas, Tx.

    If Nikki Haley ever learns to talk, she could become the next Sarah Palin. Then, we'd have somebody new to laugh at.

    Hey Sarah – while you and the Rickster are goo gooing over each other, why not ask him why he allows illegal immigrants to attend state colleges at state rates?

    So why is a half-term quitter governor "one of the most important conservative voices in America???

    Give me a break. The "disasta from Alaska" needs to go crawl back under the rock McLame found her under..............

    now that seems fitting given the BP debacle

    "most important Conservative Voices in America", kind of relative isn't it? Given that the biggest word they appear to know is 'no'

    She needs to come to Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana to survey the damage resulting from drill baby, drill.

    Amazing – Caribou Barbie keeps lining her pockets with money from people who don't know any better, by repeating idiotic slogans and bumper sticker non-sense. And a bunch of poor saps keep paying to see her!

    Gotta love capitalism – shucksters taking advantage (and the money) of people who will believe anything, even if it is not in their best interests.

    Is she going to talk about how it's Obama's fault that the spill happened at the Gulf? Tell them how to apologize to the oil companies? Please let her go down in flames this Nov with her endorsements and then hopefully just go away.
