The Kerrville Folk Festival is produced by the Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation. It is 18 days and nights featuring national and international performing songwriters in intimate musical performances. Weekend evening programming is at Kennedy Outdoor Theater and weeknight shows are presented at the Threadgill Theater located in the Campground. The Festival is held at Quiet Valley Ranch, nine miles south of Kerrville, Texas. This year’s dates are May 24 - June 10th, 2018. Now in its 47th year, it is the longest continuously running music festival in the United States. It is celebrated by a community which considers itself a family. Everyone arriving, whether for the first or fortieth time is greeted with, “Welcome Home!” Over the course of the 18 days and nights, activities are provided for all ages with a focus on nurturing and developing artistic expression, especially the art of songwriting, in a loving family-friendly environment.
