Come to George West, the Storytelling Capital of Texas, on Saturday, November 1, for the 26th annual George West Storyfest! 

This Texas Tradition will once again take place around the Live Oak County courthouse square, where storytellers, musicians, living history demonstrators, and more will share their stories with all who want to listen.  You can also eat delicious food from local nonprofit groups and do some Christmas shopping from the arts & crafts vendors.  The kiddos can have a blast in H-E-Buddy Land, the children’s area, and can learn about exotic birds from Sonny the Birdman.  We also have a 5K, classic car show, Little Red Wagon Parade, and much, much more!   FREE ADMISSION!!!
