The Dabbs Hotel and the Llano Earth Art Fest

The Dabbs Hotel was the initial sponsor to sign-on in support of the first-ever Llano Earth Art Fest (LEAF) in 2015, and remains a crystal-level sponsor of, what is now, the premier eco-event of the Llano Uplift. The Hotel will again house some of the artists arriving in Llano from out-of-town, while hosting the LEAF kick-off party and meet-and-greet the artists reception. Grenwelge Natural Area, home to LEAF (a short, beautiful walk over the Llano Bridge), is highly visible just across the Llano River from the Dabbs Hotel’s backyard, deck and dining area

The City of Llano, the Llano Chamber of Commerce and good friend Cheryl Quallenberg joined forces to create this advertising video for our fantastic little town on the river.

The Dabbs is a Living and Livable History Museum of an authentic River and RailRoad Hotel and is a popular site location for photo shoots, film and video.

The Dabbs Hotel has been a location site in productions by:

Warner Brothers
University of Texas College of Radio, Television and Film
And many private projects!
