Started to honor the memory of Houston Caldwell, an excellent young banjo player and respected community ambassador, HoustonFest has grown to be one of the premiere bluegrass and old time music festivals in the region. It takes place the second weekend in June.
The Festival is held in the storied Felts Park, home of the historic Old Fiddlers Convention in Galax, Virginia. Year after year, HoustonFest consistently presents the region’s finest traditional music artists and some of the most celebrated artists in bluegrass and old time music.
Audiences can enjoy four stages of great music, special exhibits, jamming, great food and vendors.
