This is one of the most exciting weekends in Dripping Springs where you will be serenaded by phenomenal singer/songwriter showcases. The 6th annual event is an “industry-opposite” change from the typical “Austin-palooza-music-fest” that everyone is familiar with.
The festival offers people the up-close and personal chance to see, hear, and get to know some very talented performers who have a deep love of the art of songwriting. In its essence, the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival is all about finely-crafted SONGS, and the talented folks who have written them.
Highlighted by a list of esteemed local and national talent, the festival features more than 30 shows a day. Audiences are treated to a wide variety of amazing songs and the people and stories behind them as groups of local, national and international songwriters perform “in-the-round”, Nashville-style.
Event stages are hosted by Dripping Springs’ most popular live music venues: The Barber Shop Bar
, Mazama Coffee Company
,Acopon Brewing Company, The Sidecar Tasting Room
, Hudson’s On Mercer
and Milton’s Lodging –
all located within safe, easy walking distance of each other in historic downtown Dripping Springs. These performances run all day and all night long and are absolutely FREE for everyone! Complimentary shuttle service between Venues runs throughout the event and is provided by Golf Cars of Austin.
