The Sam Houston Memorial Museum’s fifteen-acre grounds are transformed into a bustling Texas frontier settlement where you can watch historical reenactments and demonstrators, listen to live music, sip some homemade root beer, share a bag of kettle corn, shop for crafts or simply stroll the homestead where Sam and Margaret Houston lived and the place their children played.
General Sam Houston Folk Festival admission includes the May 13th-14th: 18th Annual Texas State Knife & Tomahawk Championship held on the 15-acre Sam Houston Memorial Museum grounds. Championship Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/826962163999822/
