    Tucked within 50 unblemished acres in the peaceful hill-country valley, the Kerrville Folk Festival has spent nearly 40 years enchanting ears with an eclectic mix of folk, blues, country and Americana performances spread out across 18 melodious days. Music-lovers on May 27 can spend the evening air-tromboning along with Austin Klezmorim, known as one of the Southwest's oldest klezmer bands, or crooning along with Seth Glier, a gifted young piano plinker from western Massachusetts. Legendary member of Peter, Paul and Mary, Peter Yarrow, headlines the festivities on June 3 and Atlanta's Girlyman subvert its namesake on June 10 with muscular three-part harmonies and competitive bass-drum bench presses.

  • Wild Hog Explosion
    The ninth annual Wild Hog Explosion enthralls fair-goers of all ages with barbecue cook-offs, arts and crafts, and live music leading up to the main event: a rodeo-like competition in which teams of two race to catch a Texas wild hog and haul it across the finish line the fastest. Winners receive a commemorative belt buckle and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Attendants can cheer on junior pig-chasers as they pursue baby porkers, or patrol the food and activity booths before settling in for a mouthful of barbecue with a plate piled high with kielbasa sausage and wild hog.

  • Cactus Pear Music Festival
    Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio has classical music in her blood. The one-time concertmaster of the San Antonio Symphony descends from a line of concert pianists and symphony violists, and her sister Sara plays the cello in the award-winning ensemble Eroica Trio. One summer evening in 1996, Stephanie was feeling deprived during the symphony's seasonal hiatus when inspiration struck: why not found a new festival all her own? Going strong 17 years later, the Cactus Pear Music Festival sprawls out with five concert programs scheduled in three cities over the course of two weeks.
