2023 Annual Solar Eclipse Festival – Grapetown Vineyard & Farm – Fredericksburg, Texas

The Texas Hill Country and The Annual Solar Eclipse! Live Music. Camping. A fun, casual event in the Heart of the Texas Hill Country held at Grapetown Vineyard in Fredericksburg, Texas. On the day of the eclipse guests will be able to enjoy live music, food, drink, a great viewing area and limited vendors.

We are in the path of totality, and with great Hill Country views. Grapetown Vineyard may have one of the best views in Fredericksburg Texas. We have a great campout and celebration lined up for you to enjoy. Located 8 miles south of Fredericksburg, Texas we have the perfect spot in the path of totality. Eclipse day activities will include live music, food, drink activations and primitive camping! It typically takes 550 years for a total solar eclipse to pass over the same place twice in the Northern Hemisphere and 350 years in the Southern Hemisphere. This is the experience of a lifetime.

Camping will be allowed all week and throughout the weekend. The cost to camp is $50 per day, per space. Festivities for the Eclipse will be held on Friday October 13th, 2023 at Grapetown Vineyard and Farm with a large viewing area.

On October 14, 2023, an annular solar eclipse begins over the Pacific Ocean and reaches the USA at Oregon. After passing through California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico, the path of annular solar eclipse bisects Texas. People near the middle of the path (such as Fredericksburg, Texas) of annular solar eclipse will see the dramatic view of the Sun as a brilliant ring for nearly five minutes.
