Over here at Do512 Family, you know we love a good music festival — especially when it’s a kid-friendly event! You wouldn’t believe how many times folks have told us that Old Settler’s Music Festival is their favorite to take the whole fam. Coming up again on April 19 – 22, this festival showcases the best of Roots and Americana music, offers up a fun camping experience, an arts and crafts market, great food, and plenty of kids activities. With a new location this year, in Tilmon, TX, just southeast of Lockhart, you’ll find rolling hills and a wooded setting with a dedicated family camping area for the over-nighters or plenty of day passes available, too.
Music: Check out four stages with almost three dozen bands, including Jamestown Revival, Calexico, Greensky Bluegrass, Tomar & the FCs, Bob Schneider, Ray Wylie Hubbard and much more. You can view the full performance schedule online here.
Kids Activities: For thirty-one years, parents have brought their children to Old Settler’s to enjoy the music, camping, and good times making friends in a down-home, friendly, Texas setting. Children ages 12 & under get free admission, and there’s also a great teen discount for ages 13-17. Kids activities include a petting zoo, face painting, arts & crafts, board games, balloons, an instrument petting zoo, and more.
Tickets: There’s a wide range of ticket options for those who want to camp or simply enjoy the fest by day. Click here for the overview of prices and to purchase your passes online.
Location & Shuttles: Take note of the new location this year in a one-building town called Tilmon, 10 miles southeast of Lockhart. (The address is 1616 FM 3158, Dale, Texas 78616, and you will need to put Dale into your google map search, because Tilmon doesn’t have a post office.) Click here for directions from Austin. If you prefer, you can get tickets to take the shuttle operated by FestDrive.
Get ready to get out of town for a great weekend of music and fun! For much more info and FAQs, please visit oldsettlersmusicfest.org.
