For three days in October, the music will come to the hills of Dripping Springs. The 7th annual Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival, taking place October 14-16, 2023, offers music lovers the up-close and personal chance to see, hear and get to know some very talented performers who have a deep passion for the art of songwriting.
Fans of words and music will walk the streets of downtown Dripping Springs from one welcoming setting to the next to hear their favorite singer/songwriter tell the tales of their songs and the stories behind them. The town itself is the venue and the bars, restaurant, cafe and tasting room are the stages for the 70+ songwriter showcases.
Fifty extremely talented songwriters, coming from two countries and twelve states, will play “in-the-round”, Nashville-style, on seven intimate stages located at The Barber Shop, Mazama Coffee Co., Acopon Brewing, Sidecar Tasting Room, Hudson’s on Mercer Street, Dog ‘N’ Bone and the courtyard at The Warehouse District. The majority of the stages are outdoor and open-air, and all are within a safe, easy walking distance of each other in the quaint Historic Districts of downtown Dripping Springs. The stages are sponsored by Estes Audiology, Crowdmouth, 6 String Ranch, Pilot Moon Films, Destination Dripping Springs, Sun Radio, and Community Impact. The event co-sponsor this year is Dreamland.
Performances run continuously on Friday and Saturday from afternoon to evening, and on Sunday the festivities include a spirited Gospel Brunch Showcase at Hudson’s on Mercer Street, followed by the ever-popular Festival Wrap-Party in front of The Barber Shop. Parking is plentiful and food and drinks will be available at each venue. Admission to all the showcases is FREE with registration. During the DSSF weekend, a free mobile-exclusive digital pass will be available for Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival attendees to check in and redeem discounts at participating local partner locations within the Dripping Springs downtown area.
