Rockwall’s free Founder’s Day Festival this Saturday features singer Robert Earl Keen

By J.J. Smith. The City of Rockwall will celebrate its 156th birthday this Saturday with a free, day-long “Founder’s Day Festival” on the Downtown Square, featuring music, food, activities for children, plus shopping at  booths from a variety of vendors and businesses.

According to the Rockwall Parks & Recreation Dept. website, the family-fun event begins at 10 am and ends at 9 pm.

“Critterman and his Texas Safari” – featuring snakes, alligators and native Texas “critters” – starts on the stage at 10:15 am for the kids.

Live Texas music starts at 11:45 am, with Jeanne Lay and Fat Tuesday, and continues all day, culminating with the 7 pm performance of the Festival’s star attraction, legendary songwriter and performer Robert Earl Keen – “The Father of Americana Music.”

The full day of music includes “The King Bucks” at 2 pm, and Rockwall debut of Clay McClinton at 4:30 pm.

Visitors are welcome to bring their own coolers of food and drinks, but bar-b-q, corn dogs, hamburgers, turkey legs, funnel cakes, ice cream and more will be sold on site. Downtown restaurants will also be serving.
