The Founders Day Festival, our biggest community event, will be held in downtown Dripping Springs
April 17-19, 2015. The three-day celebration kicks off with the Grand Parade and includes: free music and entertainment on two stages, the Mighty Thomas carnival, food, beer, street dances, cook-off competitions, over 150 arts and crafts booths and business vendors, and the 5th largest washer pitching tournament in the country.
The Annual Founders Day Festival honors and celebrates the founding of the Dripping Springs community in 1850 by the Moss, Wallace, and Pound families. The three-day jubilee promotes cooperation and volunteerism in the community and generates community spirit and recreation.
Hosted by the City of Dripping Springs and the Founders Day Commission, which includes representatives of various community organizations, the proceeds from the festival are donated back into the community and directly benefit local non-profit organizations, churches, school and park programs, youth groups, and charities.
