Annual Folk Life Festival Presented by Katy ISD

Annual Folk Life Festival Presented by Katy ISD

 

Katy Independent School District (KISD) is hosting the 31 st annual Folk Life Festival on Saturday April 2, 2016 from 9 AM to 4 PM. The Festival is being held as usual at the District’s Kenneth D. Welch Outdoor Learning Center (OLC) . The Kenneth D. Welch center is located in Old or Historic Katy with its address being 6301 Stadium Dr. Katy TX 77494.

 

Katy ISD Kenneth D. Welch Outdoor Learning Center is situated on 35 acres of land which is kept in its natural state. All the building blend into the natural setting. The festival concept is for students to experience life as it was for early Texan’s. The buildings include history and science classrooms mixed in with a barn and a blacksmith shop.

Attendees will get to experience the Outdoor Learning Center being transformed into a 1800’s Village complete with numerous time period activities and demonstrations such as hand quilting, Blacksmith demo, ragdoll creation, honey bee keeping, woodworking, farm animals, pioneer games, archery, cheese making and several others. The concept is to re-create this era in Texas history. All visitors will have the option to walk nature trails, visit several of exhibits at the science and history classrooms and visit the nature pond.

 

 

I wish I had the time this coming Saturday to attend as this sounds like a wonderful learning experience as I will be busy doing outdoor yard chores. If anyone attends please let me know what you thought of the Festival. Katy ISD always puts on first class events of any nature and this should be an excellent Festival to experience.
