OVERVIEW: Join us on the historic Pilot Point town square, as we celebrate the 4th annual BONNIE & CLYDE DAYS! Pilot Point, Texas, was the location of the filming of the famous "bank robbery scene" in the 1968 movie "Bonnie and Clyde" starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty. Additionally, Pilot Point (and neighboring towns and counties) was actually the stomping-grounds of Bonnie and Clyde and their cohorts, as well as other well-known outlaws (the James Gang, the Younger Brothers, Quantrill's Raiders and others). The Festival is hosted by Pilot Point's Main Street Program. For vendor info, click here. For photos and press, clickhere. Download a sponsor packet here.

5:30 – HEADLINE CONCERT. The Beerman – Brian Houser. A carpenter by trade, music has always been a love of Brian's. Usually every performance has been preceded by a forty-hour work week and singing from a working man's perspective fits his core belief that country music should be a true reflection of common people and their simple lives. In 1998, Brian Houser released his first CD, the critically acclaimed "Never Look Back." It was produced at the demand of his loyal followers in his hometown of Denton, Texas and documents his emotions of a failed 10- year marriage. The attention garnered by this work led to performances with Jerry Jeff Walker, Robert Keen and, most notably Brian's musical hero, Willie Nelson. More info >
