The Kerrville Folk Festival is a music festival held for 18 consecutive days in the late spring/early summer at Quiet Valley Ranch near Kerrville, Texas. The event has run annually since 1972. In November 2008, the Kerrville Folk Festival and Kerrville Wine & Music Festival were acquired by the Texas Folk Music Foundation.
The event draws around 30,000 people per year. Tickets (single day or season passes) are required for admission. Many patrons camp out on the festival grounds during part or all of the festival.
The festival places a strong emphasis on songwriting, though the performances encompass a variety of styles. The idea behind the festivals is to “promote emerging artists while giving our audience exposure to both new and recognized, seasoned talent”, according to the festival’s official website.
In past years, the event has also featured well known artists, including Peter, Paul and Mary, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Robert Earl Keen, Lucinda Williams, David Crosby, and Nanci Griffith.
