Our last 4th of July event near Dripping Springs you’ll want to be on the lookout for is the Fredericksburg Heritage Festival. The Fredericksburg Heritage Festival is a classic Texas 4th of July experience featuring an early morning Children’s Parade at Marktplatz, followed by parties and an aircraft flyover signaling the beginning of their Main Street parade.
After the parade, join the rest of the town at Becker Vineyards from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the best chili cookoff, food and drinks that the Hill Country has to offer. Once the cookoff comes to a close, head to Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park for the City of Fredericksburg Fireworks Display, beginning after sunset.
