WinterFest 2020

a virtual holiday celebration and fundraiser


'Twas a few days before Christmas

And there on the tube,

Old Settler’s is streaming

And you’re in the groove.

It’s your favorite musicians,

Those dear to your heart;

You’ve seen them on stage,

That’s where some got their start.

Family and friends

Have also joined in

And campfire picking circles

Are happening again.

Tune in on Saturday,

The 19th of December.

Together, we’ll make it

Something to remember.

Lawrence Jolly generously donated his artwork as the commissioned poster artist for WinterFest 2020. 

In Santa Claws old St. Nick is depicted as a musically gifting Armadillo spreading tunes and good cheer behind a hard charging red-nosed Longhorn. While the original painting is sold, prints are available on canvas or giclée paper. 20% of all print proceeds go to Old Settler's Music Festival. Order prints in various sizes at Lawrence Jolly Fine Art.

Help the Vibe Survive

So many of Austin beloved venues, establishments and traditions are disappearing. We can’t let that happen to Old Settler’s. With your help, together we can save this one-of-a-kind, 33-year tradition.

The Official 2020 Ticket Exchange

While we are heartbroken that we couldn’t be together last April, we are excited to announce that Old Settler’s Music Festival is partnering with LYTE to provide options to our 2020 Ticket Holders.

We’ve Got Dates For Our Postponed Festival

Last Summer, we asked for your opinion on a few things, including when you would attend a music festival. Thanks so much for answering all those questions. Your replies helped set the dates for our postponed festival.
