12 Fox Beer Co. 3-Year Anniversary Party
12 Fox Beer Co. is raising a glass to celebrate its 3-year anniversary and it just so happens to be over Memorial Day weekend! They’re not limiting the party to a single day either. Nope, this is a multi-day all-weekend affair! To thank the community of Dripping Springs for their support, 12 Fox is celebrating with live music on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights as well as an artisan market on Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 P.M. The festivities wrap up on Monday with a washers + cornhole tournament to support a local veterans’ nonprofit. Cheers to that!
Dreamfest and Dreamland’s Memorial Day Concert
Dreamland’s first-ever annual music and art festival kicks off on Saturday, May 28 at 9:30 A.M. The all-day event includes 10 musical performers in a variety of genres including, country, folk, blues, rock, and reggae. General admission is $50 and VIP admission is $250 which includes complimentary drinks and food as well as mini-golf. Purchase tickets here.
If you can’t make it to the festivities Saturday, you need not worry. On Memorial Day, Dreamland will be hosting a free concert by country blues artist The Zach Day Band. The live music begins at 6 P.M. and it’s the perfect way to end the day after a few rounds of pickleball or mini-golf.
Get Outside and Cool Off
You really can’t go wrong with heading out for a day of enjoyment in the great outdoors over the holiday weekend. We’re fortunate that we don’t have to venture far in Dripping Springs to discover Texas’ beautiful natural landscapes. From hiking trails at Pedernales State Park to refreshing swimming holes at Hamilton Pool Preserve, this is the perfect weekend to take advantage of the area’s parks and nature.
However you choose to celebrate Memorial Day weekend, Dripping Springs is the perfect place to kick off the summer. If you’re looking for a home in Dripping Springs, connect with the Caliterra team to learn more about our community and our home builders.
