Nothing feels more like the autumn season than an alluring bonfire with a bunch of family and friends.
Throw in live music alongside hundreds of your closest friends and you have one heckuva party that’s all for a great cause.
Now in its third year, “The Bonfire Texas Music Festival Gone to the Dogs,” takes place from 1-9:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at the Stevens and Pruett Ranch, 1210 County Road 59, in Rosharon. General admission tickets are $25 (children under 10 are only $15). Adults can buy tickets early online and get access to a $45 deal that includes one drink ticket and one barbecue ticket. The festival also offers a special $125 ticket that gives you VIP access, which includes front-row seats for the live music and an opportunity to meet the artists.
This family-friendly music festival is all about music and giving back to animal rescue organizations, so rest assured that the cost of your ticket is going toward helping a furry friend find its forever home.
Like any good Texas festival, there’s going to be barbecue, games and, of course, great live music.
This year’s headliners include Jesse Raub Jr., who has struck four No. 1 hits on Texas radio, and Holly Tucker, a finalist on NBC’s “The Voice” who was mentored by country music superstar Blake Shelton.
Other performers include Ken Gaines & Wayne Wikerson, and a host of acoustic stage performers, hosted by Ed Amash. There are eight acoustic performers scheduled to play between 1:15-6:15 p.m.
There’s also plenty of great food to gobble up and even better beer. Houston’s Karbach Brewing Co., which specializes in that classic German brewing technique, will be on hand serving up its brews.
Of course, this event is called The Bonfire Texas, so, at 7:02 p.m., Ken Gaines will perform on stage during the ceremonial lighting of a massive bonfire that will create those Instagram-worthy backdrops — #TheBonfireTexas!
The headliners then perform until about 9:30 p.m on the main stage. The Bonfire Texas takes place at a special venue. The Stevens and Pruett Foundation for Children and Animals was founded in the early 1980s on a 38-acre ranch with a goal of providing a foster home for girls and rescued animals. Young girls have a safe place to rest and animals that have been abused are nursed back to health — which fits perfectly into the mission of The Bonfire Texas. All in all, the festival is a great chance to celebrate local music while giving back and making a difference.
