Just as they have for almost 50 years, songwriters, musicians, and fans will make their annual trek to Kerrville for 18 days and nights of music, May 24-June 10. The festival claims to be the longest continuously running music festival in the country—Texas music greats Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, and Robert Earl Keen have all played here over the years. Attendants are welcome to tent and RV camp on Quiet Valley Ranch’s 20 acres, which is within walking distance to outdoor theaters and vendors and is the heart of the festival—where impromptu jam sessions can happen any time.
