For nearly 50 years people have gathered on Quiet Valley Ranch to celebrate the Kerrville Folk Festival. Held for 18 straight days and nights, the Festival offers concerts and activities for all ages that are focused on nurturing and developing artistic expression, especially the art of songwriting. In addition to evenings of live music, there are daytime activities such as children’s concerts, a songwriters’ school, workshops in ukulele, harmonica, and guitar, hill country bike rides, canoe trips on the Guadalupe River, guided nature walks, and more. There is something for everyone who enjoys music, camping, the outdoors, and making new friends. Whether you come out for a day, a weekend, or for the entire Festival, you’ll find that the music, the ambiance, and the spiritual optimism combine to make this America’s most beloved and respected songwriters gathering. The two words that seem to come up most when people describe the festivals as “magic” and “transformational.” We invite you to join us and create your own magically transformational experience and learn why so many come back year after year.
