Winter Fest 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.

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.

How To Get Here

We are located in a very small, one-building town called Tilmon, 10 miles southeast of Lockhart. The mailing address is 1616 FM 3158, Dale, Texas 78616. You can put Old Settler’s Music Festival, Dale or Tilmon into google maps and the festival will show up.


One of our major goals for the organization is to bring more sustainable practices to the festival starting with moving from diesel powered generators to electricity from renewable sources.
