Saturday, May 27 | 1:00 p.m. | Round Top Festival Institute

We invite you to share in the first-ever Texas Brass Fest, which combines four of the leading British-style Brass bands. Starting at 1:00 pm, Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio Brass bands will each perform concerts, showcasing some of Texas's best brass musicians.

Everything is bigger in Texas….right? The Texas Brass Fest is no exception. At the end of the day, all four bands will take the stage at Round Top Festival Institute to form the biggest brass band ever seen (and heard) in Texas. Of course, we are not saying it is the biggest ever in the U.S., but we are in Texas!!

At 1:00 pm, the Austin Brass Band will start the day with their performance. They will be followed by the Dallas Brass Band at 2:15 pm, the Houston Brass Band at 3:30 pm, and San Antonio Brass Band at 4:45 pm. Finally, the mass band concert will start at 6:00 pm.

In addition to some of the best British-style brass band performances this side of the Atlantic, we will have food trucks and refreshments on tap throughout the day. This will be a fun, family event not to be missed!
