The Texas Folklore Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and sharing 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 the weekend after Easter, when members read papers on a variety of folklore subjects. On Friday night there is a "hootenanny" and on Saturday night a banquet with an invited speaker or other entertainment. 

All sessions are open to the public.
