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 11 – 14, this festival showcases the best of Americana music, offers up a fun camping experience, an arts and crafts market, great food, and plenty of kids activities. Located 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 Brandi Carlisle, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Shinyribs, Wild Child, Hayes Carll — and so much more. You can view the full performance schedule online here.
Kids Activities: Parents are invited to bring 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’ programs vary a bit each year but include fun, low tech activities centered around music and the environment such as a petting zoo, face painting, arts & crafts, board games, balloons, an instrument making, and more.
