About Us


Come to George West, the Storytelling Capital of Texas, on Saturday, November 4, 2017 for the 29th 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 the children’s area, petting zoo, and can learn day to day cowboy & ranch life from the living history exhibits. We have a classic car show, motorcycle show, Little Red Wagon Parade, and much, much more! FREE ADMISSION!!!

We are in the process of updating the website with all the fun attractions coming for 2017; however, click through the pages on our site to see what all Storyfest has to offer!

Join us this year! You’ll be glad you did!

Mission Statement
