Come enjoy lunch and listen to one of Wimberley’s newest bands, Double Treble and Big Dog (with lead singer Amy Cox.) Admission to the Empty Bowls event is a bowl obtained either at Thursday night’s “Souper” Bowl Preview Party or purchased at the entrance to the event for $30. The Preview Party is Thursday, November 10, 5-7 p.m., at the Wimberley Community Center (14068 RR 12), and is free and open to the public. Bowls, crafted by fine potters, glass artists, and woodworkers, as well as by talented Wimberley art students, will be on view to be admired and auctioned. It is expected that many of these bowls will become collector’s items.

Locals and visitors alike refer to this area of the Hill Country as “A Little Bit of Heaven.” Wimberley has long been famous for its crystal clear creeks and the beautiful Blanco River and is now getting statewide recognition for the cultural activities that abound in this small village. In 2015, downtown Wimberley was named an official Texas Cultural District.

Admission to the festival’s concerts, art exhibits, and preview party is free, thanks to the generosity of local sponsors.  For those wanting to be “up close and personal” to the music, a limited number of VIP Packages for two will be sold for $250. VIP Packages will contain lots of goodies, including preferred seating, a chance to win a guitar autographed by all festival musicians, two festival t-shirts, fine dining gift certificates, and much more. Check the event’s website, www.wimberleyalive.org, for more information on purchasing the VIP packages and for listings and schedules of the weekend’s activities.
