Music and Art; Food and Fun in Kerrville, Texas

by Jessica Lavinghousez

Memorial Day evening at the Kerrville Folk Festival was an enjoyable and entertaining experience, to say the least. Remarkable artists, food, vendors, and an overall enjoyable atmosphere made for an exceptionally pleasant occasion. 

From barbeque to humus and vegetable wraps, the diversity and deliciousness of the food served to satisfy a wide range of appetites.   Equally as eclectic, was the array of vendors featured at the festival.  Vendors offered a variety of appealing products to serve a broad range of interests.  There were booths featuring assortments of artwork such as metal work, paintings, and a particularly interesting form of art created with strings.  The clothing, jewelry, and a selection of other naturally-made items such as scents, lotions, and soaps presented at the booths, all enhanced the folk spirit of the event.

A welcoming environment was created by pleasant music, interesting sights, great food, natural smells, happy people, and good company.  Another welcoming aspect of the festival included the expansion of the seating at the outdoor theatre, allowing more guests to settle in and enjoy the musical entertainment.  An overall family-friendly feel also enhanced the warmth of the event.

The atmosphere of the folk festival was highlighted by a lineup of incredible musicians that served to entertain and set a fun and relaxing mood.  While singer-song writers Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen undoubtedly drew a crowd and put on an outstanding performance, another not so well-known artist proved to be particularly unforgettable. Patrice Pike, an outstanding up and coming contemporary rock singer-song writer, seemed to capture and entertain the diverse audience with ease.  Her music was down-to-earth, passionate, relatable, and overall incredibly satisfying.  Memorial Day at the Kerrville Folk Festival proved to be one of many more successful and enjoyable days to come.

The Kerrville Folk Festival runs through June 12. For more detailed information on performers, tickets, RV and camping reservations, and other events, go to or call (830) 257-3600 or email
