June 14 & 15
Online Tickets are $20 per night or $35 for both nights
Tickets at the door are $25 per night or $40 for both
VIP Boxes are $160 and seat up to four people
Kicking off the festival Friday night is host Tyler Elliott and the return of last year’s winner of the title “2012 East Texas Funniest Comic”, Tyson Faifer. This year’s contest features nine standup comics who were chosen by a panel of the festival committee from over 30 submissions. Each comic will have five minutes to win the crowd over. The audience will vote for who they believe is the undisputed “East Texas’s Funniest Comic”.
While votes are being tallied the audience will be engaging in the unpredictable improv comedy style of Tyler’s own Card 53, who rely on their “off the cuff” brand of humor and audience participation.
And then we welcome Brandon Davidson. Brandon’s comedy spans from personal subjects to social commentary. He is a husband, father and disappointment to his parents and others. His stand-up comedy has been called, "intelligent, honest and super-duper adorable, just like him." He's a great cuddler and once urinated beside former President Bill Clinton movie theater during a showing of the smash hit Encino Man.
Our Headliner is Daryl Felsberg
After being on the road for over 10 years now, he has honed his comedy voice into a character that the industry and fans alike have taken notice of. In 2009 Daryl produced his album “Bad Fattitude”selling nationwide, while getting air play on XM / Sirus Comedy. That same year Daryl was tapped to be the host

Lets Not forget about the many summer camps in East Texas! Rosevine is the perfect place for you to stay when dropping off or picking up the kids! Here are a few-
Rockin' C Ranch, Texas
Located in East Texas, Rockin' C Ranch is located on 150 acres, including their own 10-acre private lake, between Dallas, TX and Shreveport, LA. and its rolling hills provide a great platform for ranch life. Rockin' C Ranch is a summer camp on a true working ranch.
At Rockin’ C, there are traditional camp activities like swimming, canoeing and ziplines combined with unique hands on engagement like cattle drives, collecting eggs, digging holes for fence posts and building picnic tables. Campers really get some of what they've lost in this highly technical and fast-paced world -- the chance to do some physical labor, build conversation skills while they’re working, and understanding more about life... in a fun and loving environment.
What we love:
This is a summer camp on a true East Texas working ranch. They have great (and unique) activities, plenty of land, super food, and a wonderful caring staff. Traditional camp activities like swimming, horse back riding, canoeing, high ropes course, combined with unique activities such as cattle drives, collecting eggs, bottle feeding calves and building picnic tables.
The activities are awesome, but they will personally grow and develop while at camp. Their self-esteem will shine under the mentoring of incredible college-age role models. While the kids have a lot of fun, they also are learning some great life lessons and building character.

The Ultimate Kids CampFirst of all – welcome to Camp Huawni…the kids camp that’s been reinventing summer fun since 1965! We’re head over heals that you’ve found our site and think it’s cool that you want to learn more about what many of your friends consider the best kept summer camp secret of all time.
Enough of the hoopla — we’d rather just give you a one-minute snapshot of the magical place we call Camp Huawni!
Camp Huawni is THE summer camp of all summer camps in Texas that you will hate leaving. For nearly half a century, Camp Huawni has specialized in good ‘ole fashion fun." In 1965, founder Earl Adams, known around here as Daddy Earl, turned his life-long dream of starting a kids camp into a reality. As a life-long educator, Daddy Earl noticed that kids, just like you, weren’t experiencing fully the joys of “just being a kid” in the structured environment of K-12 school. So, with some pine planks, a hammer, and a hill-top view once scattered with sugar cane, Camp Huawni was born. Now, three generations later, the Adams Family continues to reinvent fun just for you.
Over-The-Top Summer Camp CounselorsSo what keeps your friends coming back to Huawni like aKrispy-Kreme donut? Other than the fact that we’re experts at fun, we provide an electrified environment for friendships to flourish, and we do it with over-the-top counselors. Just think – you have this cool, college-aged older sister or brother who actually bugs you to play with them. That’s really how it is, and they love you just like you are…you don’t have to pretend to be popular or someone you’re not.
The Next blog we will talk about The Texas Shakespeare Festival. Yes we have a world renowned Festival right here in East Texas! It will be time for fireworks shows and our country's birthday at the end of the month, Canton Trade days will roll around again, and, since it will be a little slow for the festivals, we will feature a couple of restaurants in the are and a couple of ongoing music venues.
Come visit Tyler, East Texas, and The Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast!! Fires will still burn nightly for a few more days!! and breakfast will still be served daily.
