CONROE, Texas - Conroe is hosting its inaugural Conroe Americana Music Festival this weekend. 

It begins Friday evening and features over 50 bands performing in six different venues. One of the host venues is Red Brick Tavern, which incidentally, has just been named home of the best hamburger in Montgomery County.

Money from the festival will be used to enhance the Historic Downtown Conroe area with improved signage and beautification projects, according to the Conroe Downtown Area Association.

One festival official said, “we hope to increase the size of the festival each year as more music fans come to our home town–Conroe.”
