The PSF is the largest, and longest-running, of Texas’ arts/crafts and music festivals. It draws nearly 300 local and national arts, crafts and food vendors, +/-50 musical acts and a quarter-million attendees during the weekend. PSF is also FREE; the ONLY large-scale festival around that can boast this!

Our featured artist is local Chris Rogers with an original piece for our posters and t-shirts sold at the PSA booth; his booth adjacent (Trinity and 6th St.; but will only be at the Festival Sunday).
