Georgetown, Texas, known for the “Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas,” will host its 18th Annual Red Poppy Festival on April 28 – 30, 2017. As one of the few places in the United States where red poppies grow naturally every spring, Georgetown was named the Red Poppy Capital of Texas by the Texas Legislature in 1990. The town will celebrate the flowers’ vivid blooming with a weekend full of concerts, parades, art, food and family fun. Grammy Award-winning country music group, Diamond Rio, will headline this year’s festival, performing their newest studio album, I Made It, as well as other hits from their 35-year career. All festival events are free and open to the public.

The three-day, all age-inclusive weekend includes a “Paint Georgetown Red” parade, arts and crafts, a car show, live music, a food court, a kid’s fun zone, presentation of the award winners for the Red Poppy Taste Awards and much more, all located downtown, around the “Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas,” from April 28 – 30. The action begins Friday night at 6 p.m. with arts, crafts and plenty of food; live music from Groove Knight begins at 7 p.m. in front of the courthouse. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs.

On Saturday, April 29, visitors are encouraged to wear red for the “Paint Georgetown Red” Parade at 10 a.m. From 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., car lovers can enjoy the Classic Car Show with the awards presentation at 3 p.m. The Red Poppy Taste Awards presentation will take place at 7:20 p.m. immediately followed by live music.

Live music on all three stages will continue on Sunday, April 30, along with arts and crafts booths and the Kiwanis’ One in the Hole Ball Drop at 2 p.m. The festival wraps up at 5 p.m. on Sunday. Full schedule available here.

Being a mom can be a lonely experience if you allow it to be. We know all too well what it feels like when you are juggling feedings and life and then somehow you wake up one day and realize that your social calendar has taken a backseat. We would love it if you would take the time to join us for some various playdates and mom’s night out events throughout the year. Since everyone has different schedules and needs we will be doing our best to vary the dates, times, locations, and age ranges of the activities we plan.

Make sure you follow us on FacebookInstagramPinterest, and Twitter to stay abreast of the latest dates and events. All event registration is first come, first served and moms must be registered in advance.
