October 30 and 31
Haunted Hayride: Hop on the back of a tractor-pulled trailer and enjoy a relaxing ride under the Texas sky, just make sure you’re paying attention to what’s around the next turn
Petting Zoo: Pose for pics and pet these carrot-loving, friendly farm animals. Pumpkin Patch: Instagram influencers (and parents) eat your hearts out. The entire property will be loaded with fall-themed photo-ops.
Hay Maze: Equally fun for kids or adults. Adult and kid-friendly beverages. While this is a family-friendly event, there will be plenty of young (and not so young) adults celebrating as well. We’ll have beer, wine, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverage options available for purchase.
Food: BBQ for purchase from Red White & Blue BBQ
Yard Games and General Merriment: Corn-hole, Giant Jenga & Connect Four, Tetherball, and more… This beautiful property is enough to warrant attending alone. Join us for a night of good fun and good people out on the ranch.
Cost: $30 per person, kids five and under are free (parking available for $10) Event from 5-11 pm with hayrides from 6-10 pm
In and Around Dripping Springs
Friday, November 1 through Sunday, November 3
The Dripping Springs Run By The Creek Race is made possible through The Dripping Springs Running Club (DSRC). DSRC was formed as a non-profit organization for the purpose of making contributions to local Dripping Springs non-profit organizations, public projects, and events. This year’s race proceeds will benefit local parks and provide funds to local organizations dedicated to promoting running and healthy lifestyles in our communities.
Area citizens will come together on Sunday, November 3rd from 11 am to 3 pm at Dripping Springs Ranch Park and Event Center to celebrate 22 years of hosting the annual Empty Bowls Project, a regional collaboration and fundraiser that helps fight hunger and food insecurity locally.
Co-sponsored by Dripping Springs Helping Hands and the City of Dripping Springs, the annual family fun event will raise a substantial amount of money to help feed the hungry. In exchange for a donation of only $25 per person at the door, patrons can choose a beautiful ceramic bowl and fill it with delicious soups and bread from 30 plus area restaurants. Live music will be provided by Alex Dormont, Madison Rodges, Braydon Zink, and Micah Wagner. New this year, Bell Springs Brewing Company, long known for its wine, has begun making beer and will serve free beer to guests to enjoy with their meal while listening to music. After enjoying a wonderful meal and delightful desserts, listening to live entertainment, and visiting with friends and neighbors, guests can take their one of a kind artisan bowl home as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. Good friends, great food, live music. Support for neighbors in need. Benefits Crisis Bread Basket.
