The Festival Hill campus is a unique facility set apart from the distractions and frustrations of urban living in the beautiful Texas countryside. Here, visitors and guests have the opportunity to relax, reflect and enjoy the many services and amenities available at Festival Hill. Described by the magazine Texas Business as “no less beautiful than its surroundings: gently rolling, verdant, quiet country”, The Round Top Festival Institute includes facilities for weddings, receptions and dining, conferences, retreats, tours of the campus and portrait and photography sittings. In addition, overnight accommodations (no pets allowed) for concerts and other events are available.
Overnight accommodations for concerts, retreats, conferences, weddings and other events are available in ten unique buildings on Festival Hill. The sixty bedrooms include private entrances, heating and air conditioning, full baths and ample dressing room. Each of the bedrooms is tastefully furnished and may include up to four twin beds or a double bed.
The Edythe Bates Old chapel is fully equipped for conference presentations.
Conferences can break in smaller groups and meet in the Service Building.
And the now celebrated food service offers breakfasts and meals in the Dining Hall at Menke House.
