Katy ISD to host 36th annual Folk Life Festival

Posted

The Katy Independent School District hosts the 36th annual Folk Life Festival this weekend.

The festival is set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Kenneth D. Welch Outdoor Learning Center, which is just west of the district’s Education Support Complex at 6301 S. Stadium Lane. Admission is free.

The family-friendly event gives people a glimpse of what life was like in Texas during the 1800s. Visitors will experience pioneer life by seeing how people dressed and survived, the types of foods they prepared and even how their children engaged in learning.

Other activities include blacksmith demonstrations, weaving and spinning, Native American dancing, honey beekeeping and more.

Visitors will be able to tour the newly renovated facility as they walk the grounds, visit the ponds and see the exhibits in the science and history classrooms. Before the festivities begin, the community can also witness the unveiling of the Kenneth D. Welch portrait inside the Outdoor Learning Center.
