After the extreme heat of the summer, I think everyone is fondly looking towards fall. On the first weekend of autumn (officially) you have an opportunity to attend different local concerts/music festivals. Opportunities to hear outdoor live music increases at both a local music festival and a concert series in Montgomery County.
Texas Roots Festival
Head out to New Waverly for the Texas Roots Festival. The address to the festival is: Texas Roots Ranch 627 Hawthorne Rd. It is a two day event running from Saturday, September 24-25th. Each day live music plays from 12 noon to 10 p.m. This festival showcases the very best of our local talent on two different stages. From David Collins to Kamakazie Kowboys, you will hear and support local musicians. To see the full lineup, click here.
In addition to music, the festival also showcases artists and other talented vendors. More than 50 vendors will be at the Texas Roots Festival. Food trucks come not only to feed the masses, but introduce many to their delicious cuisine. You can also camp at the festival, which ensures that you don’t miss a single band. Enjoy live music and shopping. Support local artists. Have fun. You can’t go wrong attending this music festival. To buy tickets, click here.
Concert in the Park
If you prefer an evening concert to a weekend-long festival, consider heading down to The Woodlands on Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. The Township is continuing its fall concert season at Northshore Park, which sits at 2505 Lake Woodlands Dr. This Sunday, September 18th the band, Rapture is playing until 7:30 p.m. Then the following Sunday on the 25th, the Route 66 Band is playing. On this day, they will also have sidewalk chalk available for you to express yourself.
For any of the concerts in Northshore Park, you can bring blankets, chairs, and coolers. So pack a picnic and enjoy an evening filled with music and fun. These concerts continue through October.
If you love live music, then you definitely need to check these events out. One supports fully local musicians and bands. One is free. Either way as the temperatures typically grow cooler, our desire for outdoor live music heats up.
