The Oatmeal Festival takes place at a later, but cooler, date in 2023. Typically held on Labor Day weekend, the 46th annual event is Sept. 30-Oct. 1 in downtown Bertram.

The ode to oatmeal — and Oatmeal, Texas, which is near Bertram — still has plenty of fun in the mix, including grand and pet parades, vendors and games, cornhole and washer tournaments, a fun run, baking contests, and a street dance on Sept. 30 with live music by JesseLee Jones and Brazilbilly.

The event started in 1978 as a way to put the tiny community of Oatmeal on the map. It has grown into one of the most popular, family-friendly festivals in the Highland Lakes.

Most festival activities take place Sept. 30-Oct. 1 (although a few got an early start; check the festival website)
