Farmgrass Fest 2015 - The Gravy Brothers + Billy Bright and Trevor Smith.jpg

Music Pick | Farmgrass Fest

Farmgrass Fest, a family-friendly outdoor music festival, is back for its second year. Located on the Simmons Family Farm, a 130- acre lot of pristine farmland about 45 minutes outside of Austin, Farmgrass Fest will provide a unique opportunity to see the best of bluegrass.

During the two-day extravaganza, attendees can enjoy beer, food vendors, fresh produce and the toe-tapping sounds of bluegrass artists like Austin’s own Shinyribs. In addition to bands like The Lost Pines, Dawn & Hawkes, Sour Bridges, Danny Barnes & Barn of Wood and Jenny and the Corn Ponies, attendees can partake in the Airstream boutique, a mobile shop featuring handmade and vintage jewelry, clothing and accessories. Also on hand will be a kids’ activity area, yoga and more.

But the celebration is about more than a music festival. Farmgrass is the brainchild of Talia Bryce, who set out to create an event in support of our local farming community. Proceeds from the fest go to an emergency medical fund that's available to farmers throughout Central Texas.

Simmons Family Farm is located at 100 Simmons Family Farm Road just off of Holz Rd. (CR 224), south of Niederwald, Texas.
