Kerrville Folk Festival is held annually at the Quiet Valley
Ranch, 9 miles south of Kerrville on Texas Hwy 16. Starting
on the Thursday before Memorial Day at the end of May, the
music continues for 18 days with performances by more than
100 singer songwriters and their bands. Interspersed between
weekends are workshops in songwriting, blues guitar, and harmonica.
The annual Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition is held
on the first weekend and draws 32 of the best of America's
emerging songwriters. Award winners are recognized at a special
concert on the second weekend. The Texas Folk Music
Foundation sponsors the Professional Development Program for
Teachers the second mid-week of the festival and is a great
way for teachers to earn continuing education credits while
learning how to utilize music as a teaching tool.
Kerrville Folk Festival is a great place to be for Kerrverts
of All Ages!
