1st Annual Olive Festival in Dripping Springs

An exciting new event is happening this weekend in Dripping Springs, the First Annual Olive Festival. The event is being hosted by Texas Hill Country Olive Company from 11 a. m. to 6 p. m. Saturday on 2530 W Fitzhugh Road. The festival will feature cooking demonstrations,  live music, national olive oil experts and wine from 17 Texas hill country wineries. Over 17 wineries will be participating as well as local chefs offering tasty local creations. Along with food and fun special guests will be presenting information on topics such as cooking demonstrations, orchard development seminars, and book signings by Carol Drinkwater and Micki Sannar, both of whom will also be doing cooking demonstrations. Micki Sannar will be showing folks how to prepare desserts using olive oil, sounds pretty interesting to me! Tickets are $35/person and more information can be found at
