Pioneer Day

Step back in time and experience early Texas history in Dripping Springs. This event has fun for the whole family with re-enactments, demonstrations, live music, BBQ and shopping.

As you stroll the 5-acre grounds you will see civil-war era patriots with their weapons and artifacts on display. Listen for the real cannon blast every hour! Visit the petting zoo or take a ride in our horse-drawn  covered wagon. See live blacksmithy demonstrations and play pioneer games.  There are also make-and-take craft stations.

Parents will enjoy artisan shopping with fine handmade items created with the same skill and craftsmanship of yore; like rag rugs woven on a loom or hand-made brooms. Your purchase will probably come with a demonstration & a story!

Once you're tuckered out from all the fun and ready for a rest, get yourself  a cool drink and some BBQ from the DS Cookoff club and take a spot under our 500 year-old Heritage Tree to listen to live Bluegrass music.  
They just don't make fun like this anymore!
