Join us every April at Folkfest!  

Enjoy a 19th century family heritage festival, fun for all ages! Early Texas costumed interpreters join troops of Buffalo Soldiers, Confederate veterans, and Revolutionary Way officers to demonstrate life in early Texas.  Chuck wagon champion Donnie Demoin demonstrates how cowboys were fed on the trail. Kids of all ages enjoy hands-on activities like brick making, candle making, clay play, clothes washing, and quilt making.  Learn nine-pin bowling, a game with a unique role in the Texas Hill Country. Saw logs with a crosscut saw and play games from the 19th century.   All these activities combine with multi-cultural entertainment, and delicious local food and drink to make Folkfest a fun afternoon!  For a list of vendors and entertainers click here.
