Founders Day 2023

The Tradition Continues

Founders Day began as a chicken cook-off in 1988 and has become an annual tradition drawing more than 5,000 Texans from across the state to gather in Dripping Springs and celebrate small-town life. 

“It is a three-day celebration that honors the pioneers who settled the land in 1854 and builds community spirit,” said Brenda Medcalf, Founders Day Commission Chair. The festival starts with the Grand Parade and features carnival rides, cook-off competitions, live music, food, beer, and more than 150 business vendors and arts and crafts booths. Proceeds benefit local small businesses and non-profit organizations. 

“This event gives us a chance to showcase our small town and the bonds that unite us,” noted Medcalf.

Enjoy the Founders Day events on Drippings Springs’ historic Mercer Street, from Friday, April 28th through Sunday, April 30th. Visit for more information.
