Kerrville Folk Festival

Kerrville Folk Festival 2024

MAY 23, 2024 - JUNE 09, 2024


The longest-running music festival in the country is back for another 18 days of camping, river walks, folk art, and acoustic music.

Forget Coachella chic, at Kerrville Folk Festival in the Texas Hill Country, it’s all about comfy jeans and acoustic guitars. Held for 18 consecutive days at Quiet Valley Ranch, Kerrville claims the title of longest-running music festival in the United States (they do say everything is bigger — and I guess longer — in Texas). It’s less a concert and more a folk music utopia, where headliners like Ray Wylie Hubbard and Darrell Scott strum alongside rising stars all under the big Texas sky.

The festival has a loyal following, in part because of the camping; it’s included in the ticket price. You can meet new friends around a campfire, float the Guadalupe River and have some impromptu jam sessions on the grounds. The festival also hosts workshops on everything from fingerpicking to songwriting, as well as a variety of craft and food vendors. Think classic BBQ, refreshing frosé and handmade folk art.
