General Sam Houston Folk Festival Kicks Off

Published on May 03, 2013 by Larry Crippen

The Sam Houston Memorial Museum will celebrate the lives of the Houston family by recreating the 1800’s Huntsville atmosphere in which they lived during the 26th annual Gen. Sam Houston Folk Festival this Friday through Sunday.

More than 15,000 visitors are anticipated to learn about life during Houston’s days from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday on the museum grounds.

The historical event will include live historical re-enactors performing vignettes and theatrical interpretations, costumed historical characters, folk-life demonstrations, arts and crafts, dulcimer workshops, live acoustic music, a living history theatre and ethnic foods.
