Walter Hall Park
65thAnnual League City Music Festival to transform Walter Hall Park
Live music from national recording artists to graduates of the School Rock will transform the normally tranquil meadows of Walter Hall Park into a musical smorgasbord ranging from reggae to rock, country to folk.
The 65th Annual League City Music Festival and Bar-B-Q Cook-off, May 2-5, brings friends and families together for live music, good food, and lots of fun. The annual event, previously known as the “Village Fair” is hosted by the League City Lions Club as a fundraiser to provide support services for local charities.
Good music and more of it, will be the focus of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. From nationally-recognized country music artists to an up-and-coming reggae band, the festival will feature music on three-stages: Miller Lite Main Stage, Stage 2 located in the festival’s market and midway, and Lynn’s Beirgarten.
National country recording artist Jerrod Niemann and throwback cover band Bag of Donuts will headline the 65th Annual League City Music Festival & BBQ Cook-off, May 2-5, at Walter Hall Park.
Other bands scheduled to perform during the four-day event include Nick and the Groove, Southern Shanks Band, Below Skies, Paper Wolf, Ojos Rojos, and many others.
Be sure to check out Lynn’s Beirgarten for your pre- and post-party hangout featuring live music from local musicians.
In addition to live music, more than 100 teams will compete in an IBCA sanctioned BBQ cook-off featuring ribs, brisket, and chili, salsa, margaritas, beef and chicken fajitas categories with a $10,000 guaranteed total cash payout.
For those not participating in the cook-off there will be plenty of festival food offerings from sausage-on-a-stick to BBQ sandwiches, funnel cakes to fried Oreos.
If you’re looking for something a little, check out Lynn’s Beirgarten which will feature beer and wine paired with authentic German cuisine.
On Sunday, the League City Music Festival goes “International” offering entertainment representing countries and local immigrant communities from around the world including Mexico, India, and Greece.
Who can resist the bright lights and whirring machines of the Carnival midway along with the opportunity to browse booths of talented artists and craftsman that set-up shop on the festival grounds? And for animal lovers, Sunday will also feature a pet adoption fair hosted by League City Pet’s Alive.
