We're moving! Our new host institution is Tarleton State University and our new home office will be located in Granbury, Texas. With the coronavirus pandemic, access to facilities to get everything moved has been a challenge. We hope to be in the new home office with a new website by Fall of 2020.
While we had to cancel our Annual Meeting scheduled for San Antonio in 2020, plans for the 2021 meeting are underway. Mark your calendars for a Family Reunion Style Annual Meeting April 1-3, 2021, in Granbury. We'll all be more than ready to see each other and the new office!!
Whether you've been a member for decades or if this is your first visit to our site, Welcome!
The Texas Folklore Society collects, preserves, and shares the folklore of Texas and the Southwest.
The Texas Folklore Society is the oldest state folklore organization continually functioning in the United States. Founded in 1909, the Society held its first meeting on the campus of the University of Texas in 1911. The annual meeting takes place Thursday evening through Saturday at noon of Easter weekend. Thursday night folks gather for a reception followed by a hootenanny. Friday during the day, members present papers on a variety of folklore subjects followed by a banquet and a hootenanny. Saturday morning features a few more papers and a brief business meeting. All events conclude in time for those who wish to return home in time for their Easter festivities.
