Texas Festivals 2016, 2017

The festivals in Texas range from music festivals and art festivals to county fairs, making it more than just an industrial state. From the state/county festivals, the TriState Fair which takes place as the colder months are starting is attended by many Texans. The State Fair of Texas also takes place around the same time. North Texas Fair is another high feature in the county festival season of the state.

Texas music festivals are hosted all year round. Wildflower, Art & Music (WAM) Fest is particularly famous. People also tend to enjoy the Pegasus fest and the Voice Tour where famous musicians play their music amidst great food and lively people. The RedFest at the end of spring and Texas Thunder are other music fests that the season brings. Utopiafest takes place in Utopia and is known to host great music. Other fests include the Austin City Limits fest which lasts for 2 weekends during the Halloween season.

Texas events also include arts and craft fests, with the Texas Scottish fest being a high point of the season. People from different parts of the country come to attend the Austin Fest of Fine Arts as well. The Spring Arts Market is also a great way to start the season. The Gingerbread Trail fest comes at the end of the season followed by the AFA Summer Concert and the annual Street Arts Fest.
