It's local stuff that matters to you!

I go there almost every day just to catch up.

It’s a good way to answer the question, ‘It’s Saturday night. What are we going to do?’.

I like that I can ask a question in the comments about a specific venue and receive an answer from someone who has actually been there.

Events! 40+ Events

Organ at First Presbyterian Church, Kilgore

East Texas Pipe Organ Festival

“People come here from all parts of the U.S. Some come specifically to hear the legendary pipe organ at the First Presbyterian Church in Kilgore. Others come to hear the full series of concerts, as well as to enjoy the lectures and papers. Of course, we pay tribute to Roy Perry’s days as a movie house organist. We do a silent movie every year, plus play the organ music to go with it. This year’s movie is one of Buster Keaton’s, and we have a theater organist who can play the proper theater music.”
