Spring 2018 in Llano
Ask anyone and they’ll tell you Spring is the best time to visit the Hill Country! The river flows just right for kayaking, the water in town lake is perfect for swimmers, roads are blooming with bluebonnets, and the weather is just right for hiking enchanted rock! After adventure filled Spring days, you can rest your head and recharge with a home-cooked country breakfast at The Dabbs!
Llano Earth and Art Festival 2018– March 9th-12th
LEAF takes place annually at Grenwelge park right across the street from the hotel! The Dabbs sponsors the festival and hosts the rock balancers/artists that come from all over the world to compete in the World Rock Stacking Championship! If rock art (which is pretty impressive) doesn’t spark your interest then maybe the art vendors and workshops will. There’s multiple live bands throughout the weekend and plenty of yummy food trucks! The Dabbs is booked with rockstackers, but no worries you can camp on site! Make sure to stop by The Dabbs during your stay for a private tour!
