SPICEWOOD, Texas (KXAN) — Spooky season is upon us and Willie Nelson is getting in the Halloween spirit.
Luck Presents, a cultural collective headquartered on Nelson’s property just outside of Austin, will host its first fall-themed event called “Lucktoberfest.”
The three-day festival is Friday through Sunday and coincides with Luck’s 10th anniversary.
The event was scaled back from 10 days of concerts to a three-day weekend festival format instead. “We made this choice due to the uncertainty of the touring market right now,” organizers shared on social media.
The festival is still expected to be a unique fall experience with the help of Willie’s Wild West-themed town.
