Just one week after the ribbon cutting ceremony, Dripping Springs Ranch Park hosted the 6th Annual Dripping with Taste Wine, Food, and Arts Festival in its new 165,000 s.f. event center.  The widely popular event has maxed out smaller venues in years past, but found a new home with ample space this year at the event center.

The festival is known for having “the most Texas wines in one location,” featuring more than 25 wineries, 5 independent breweries, and 17 food vendors.  The juried art show from the Artists Alliance of the Hill Country brought a new component to the event this year, with over 20 artists competing.

RVi has been involved with the design of Dripping Springs Ranch Park since 2008.  During this time the park has grown from 64 acres to over 100 acres.  The first phase of new construction included the event center and arena, outdoor playscape, and primitive camping areas.  Pedestrian and equestrian trails, picnic areas, and spaces for open play are currently under construction.  Existing elements of the park, including an outdoor arena, round pen, and ranch house with barn for group meetings and weekend getaways continue to function as part of the newly expanded venue.
