Austin String Band Festival
It’s one of the best-kept secrets in the Austin area, a music festival with small crowds, a lovely natural setting and close-in parking. The Austin String Band Festival is at Camp Ben McCulloch (right by the Salt Lick) in Driftwood October 18-20. Dance all night on Friday, then attend workshops under the trees early on Saturday, then kick back for a day and night of nonstop fiddles, banjos and guitars as more than two dozen bands take the stage. Sunday is a gospel jam. Camping along Onion Creek.
