One weekend. Three great festivals. FEB 17 2012
During April, milder temperatures across Texas make quick road trips appealing, especially to Fredericksburg where the profusion of color from wildflowers is everywhere. And during that final week of April, the Fredericksburg events calendar is packed with plenty of fun things to do and see.
Three of these great events are festivals – the Hill Country Wine and Music Festival, the Hill Country Film Festival and the nature-inspired Wings Over the Hills Nature Festival.
Set for Thursday, April 26 through Saturday, April 28, the 3rd Annual Hill Country Wine and Music Festival offers foodies and music fans alike the chance to celebrate with three distinct events – a vintner dinner at the Cabernet Grill Texas Wine Country Restaurant, a book signing reception at the National Museum of the Pacific War and Saturday’s fun-filled festival at Wildseed Farms.
Also set for that weekend is the Hill Country Film Festival – four days of short- and feature-length indie films, filmmaker Q&A and panel discussions. Meet the actors and participate in this film festival, which will run April 26-29 at the Stagecoach Theater in Fredericksburg. Social events and parties are all part of this event, which brings Hollywood to the Texas Hill Country.
Prefer the great outdoors? Wings Over the Hills Nature Festival offers the whole family educational and entertainment activities focused on the unique wildlife features of the Texas Hill Country. Headquartered from the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in Fredericksburg and running April 27-29, the event offers something for everyone from the curious child to the seasoned birder. It’s a celebration of natural flight! There will be activities just for the kiddos, and attendees can participate in guided field trips on the park’s nature trail and on motor coach tours of the area. Learn more about nature up-close, and about the winged creatures that inhabit the Texas Hill Country.
Mark your calendars now and make plans to see the beauty of Fredericksburg – the Texas Hill Country.
