Held annually since 2011 and named in memory of banjoist Houston Caldwell, a locally beloved banjo-player who died at the age of 18, HoustonFest has become a festival that people schedule their year around so they won’t miss it. Providing two full days of talent on four stages and featuring some of the region’s finest old time, bluegrass, country and gospel artists as well as top-drawer artists from the upper echelon of roots music, HoustonFest takes place in the relaxing atmosphere of Felts Park in Galax, site of the world-famous Galax Old Fiddlers Convention. In addition to amazing non-stop music on stage, the festival offers plenty of chances to enjoy workshops and exhibits that provide great context for the region’s heritage music. Camp Houston is dedicated to outstanding youth band performances, an instrument petting zoo, and more. HoustonFest delivers superb entertainment year after year. There is limited grandstand seating, so you may want to bring a lawn chair. Camping is available on site. More information at houstonfestgalax.com or call HoustonFest at (276) 236-9908.
