    I heard talk of a Houston festival this month to confer all the degrees. Has anyone heard about this?

    No York Rite. They tend to call them festivals as the Scottish Rite calls them reunions in my area. I am already a 32nd deg. with the AASR. I don't know very much about the York Rite but am interested and we have a local chapter in my town. I need to ask in my lodge next time I am there. One of my friends there is the Thrice Illustrious Master, whatever that is.

    Correct, reunion = SR, festival = YR. My 64th district (Fort Worth/Tarrant County) is holding one in September (which I will be doing the long form IPC role in the Royal Master degree ^_^). I would imagine that a lot of districts are holding them at similar times. Your friend who is a TIM (btw, that is the WM equivalent in the Cryptic Council) *should* know the details of the festival. If not, your Masters, Wardens, and Secretaries Association (and by extension YOUR lodge secretary) should have details, I would think.

    The Houston area festival is August 17th at Holland Lodge. It will begin with registration at 6:30am the first degree will start at 7:00am and the Order of the Temple should end around 7:00pm. It is honoring M.E. Tommy Chapman Grand High Priest and R.E. Bart Henderson Right Eminent Grand Commander. There is also a recepition for R.E. Henderson on Sunday the 11th at the Arabia Shrine Temple from 1:00pm - 3:00pm

    I'm doing mine at the Helotes Festival on September 27th. I'm not sure if they've published details on it yet, but my understanding is that registration starts at 7:30 (need a letter requesting that they do the work as a courtesy), and the degrees follow. They're doing everything except the Orders.

    Congratulations! Glad to hear you enjoyed it. I went through the MMM degree here locally, but I'll be doing the rest via festival next month. Good to know it's a good way to do it.

    Just received my York Rite degrees and orders at the Houston festival. It was a long day but worth it.
