Pam Owens

President and CEO - Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau

As we discussed our content ideas for the February love local issue it was a no-brainer for us to highlight Pam Owens in this issue. Pam has lived in Dripping Springs for more than 40 years. She raised her son here and now he is raising his four children here alongside his wife. Pam has been a staple in the Dripping community for many years and most recently has served as the President/CEO of the nonprofit Dripping Springs Visitors Bureau. 

Destination Dripping Springs, the marketing arm of the bureau, highlights opportunities for visitors to experience wineries, breweries, distilleries, dark skies, shops, great natural beauty, and much more. Destination DS programs include the Wedding Capital of Texas®, including two wedding showcases each year; Dripping with Taste® Trail; the Dripping Springs Brewers Festival; and the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival.

Pam has seen a multitude of changes here since her first visit in 1982. Despite the growth, Pam believes we’re still a community and still have a small-town feel. The heart of Dripping Springs is to take care of its own. She loves going into businesses and seeing people she knows, getting a hug and catching up on their families. She opened Your Growing Child, a childcare center, in 1986, started Print Plus in 2001, and went to work for the Chamber and now the Visitors Bureau in 2012. She’s sat on boards or committees including the Friends of the Pound House, DS Community Foundation, Chamber of Commerce, Hill Country Care, the Phillips Cemetery Association, and her churches. She’s had the privilege to be very involved with community families from birth to death and with their businesses.

Pam encourages us all to check out the granite monument on Mercer explaining the actual dripping springs located off Mercer and to pick up a copy of the Explore Historic Dripping Springs brochure at the Visitors Center for a walking tour of downtown. It also has a wealth of information for residents and visitors including an event calendar and an app for your phone.
