The inaugural event’s culinary lineup will feature a wide variety of food and beverage options with an emphasis on Texas-inspired dishes and classic camp favorites. Featuring a menu designed by the resort’s very own Executive Chef Joe Gentempo, Campfire Gathering will offer delectable passed bites, mouthwatering grill options, tasty late-night snacks, and more—all of which will be complimentary to attendees throughout the event. The festival’s home at Camp Lucy is also home to the award-winning Tillie’s, which will be open during their usual business hours to guests should they opt to dine-in.
To kick off Day 1 of Campfire Gathering on Monday evening, attendees will be greeted with a special wine tasting from Ron Yates Wine, a sister winery to the award-winning Spicewood Vineyards and recently named as Tasting Table’s “Best New Wineries in the US.” Heavy passed bites, including fried green tomatoes, empanadas, and more, a charcuterie grazing table filled with domestic and imported cheeses, cured meats, and fresh seasonal fruits, as well as a crostini bar will also be available to guests as they arrive on Monday afternoon. Guests will also be treated to an afternoon acoustic session from Austin-based folk singer and songwriter Jason Robert Blum.
To celebrate the first Campfire Gathering, guests on Monday are invited to attend the official “Lighting of the Campfire” with a complimentary champagne toast before music performances kick off from acts. Day 1 music performers include Nashville-based singer/songwriter Margo Price, acclaimed indie rock band Delta Spirit, and Austin’s White Denim. In the late evening, after musical performances begin, a variety of late-night snacks will be available, including s’mores by the campfire as well as buttermilk chicken-and-waffle bites.
Shortly after the music begins around noon on Tuesday, Day 2 attendees will be treated to a classic Campfire Cookout, where they will have the opportunity to enjoy elevated camp favorites, including a hotdog and hamburger bar as well as Campfire’s own chili and Frito pies. In the early evening, heavy passed bites will again be available, including braised short ribs, pork potstickers, shrimp & grits, bacon-wrapped quail bites, shrimp and avocado ceviche, ancho pork tostadas, plus a salsa, queso, and guacamole bar. Late-night snacks on Tuesday, such as corn s’mores, bacon-wrapped jalapenos, cheese fritters, and more will be offered as guests enjoy close-out performances from festival headliners inside a spacious Honkytonk Dance Hall nestled above the historic Onion Creek.
Tuesday will include a headlining music performance from Austin’s own Shakey Graves as well as sets from Canada’s Colter Wall, Orville Peck, Deer Tick, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Matthew Logan Vasquez, Sir Woman, and Israel Nash, in addition to intimate chapel sessions from acts like Nikki Lane, Joe Ely, and others that are being presented by Austin’s premier social club and private lounge The Pershing. Overnight lodging guests are also invited to attend “Paul Cauthen’s Big Velvet Party,” which will begin just after the last artist performance and will feature surprise musical guests to close out Year 1.
Campfire Gathering will also have special food programming that is exclusive to overnight lodging guests. On Monday evening, those staying overnight are invited to attend a Founder’s Dinner at Tillie’s, a gourmet, four-course, seated dinner offering a menu curated by Chef Gentempo and the culinary team from Tillie’s. A special Brunch & Jam menu will be available on Tuesday morning for overnight guests as well, including surprise sets from performing music artists, along with an omelet bar, breakfast taco bar, yogurt, berry, and granola bar, and drink offerings, including a juice and coffee bar. Guests who are departing on Wednesday morning will have the option to attend a themed Gospel Brunch featuring a special performance from Texas-based gospel and soul outfit The New Soul Invaders.
The festival will also play host to a handful of artisanal marketplace vendors, many of which hail from Texas. Brands including Aspen Hatter, Zilker Belts, Amana Sol Shoes, American Drifter Vintage, Circa 1975 Chain Stitching, and Lux + Luz Jewelry will be offering a variety of handcrafted accessories and clothing, and local CBD company Canvas 1839 will offer spa services, including massages with a special CBD twist.
