Great food and great fun com­bine at an­nual Founders’ Day Fes­ti­val. Ev­ery year in April the en­tire com­mu­nity of Drip­ping Springs comes to­gether to cel­e­brate their his­tory with this three-day event which in­cludes a pa­rade, a car­ni­val, cookoffs, arts and crafts, food ven­dors, and lots of live en­ter­tain­ment.

A small town event which just cel­e­brated its 20th year, Founders Day has grown into one the largest fes­ti­vals in the Texas Hill Coun­try, at­tract­ing over 4,000 vis­i­tors and par­tic­i­pants. The Fes­ti­val draws a wide ar­ray of folks in­clud­ing com­pet­i­tive cooks and food­ies who love the taste of bar­be­cue, as well as the tra­di­tional fest of­fer­ings — arts and craft shop­ping that fea­tures unique homemade items.

Pe o p l e can sam­ple the scrump­tious se­lec­tions from more than 120 cooks, in­clud­ing fa­ji­tas, chicken, pork, brisket, salsa, chili and pot luck.

Mu­sic afi­ciona­dos get to en­joy a variety of tunes and en­ter­tain­ers while kids who wait with an­tic­i­pa­tion for the open­ing pa­rade, as well as the car­ni­val rides, are never dis­ap­pointed. The pa­rade is al­ways a big draw. Folks dec­o­rate floats to re­flect the an­nual theme.The fes­ti­val al­ways proves a lot of fun for peo­ple of all ages es­pe­cially kids.

Cookoffs, live en­ter­tain­ment, a street dance, live and silent auc­tions are just some of the events that make the fes­ti­val great. Log on to www.founder­s­dayfes­ti­ to find out about 2008 dates or call 858-4725 for ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion.
