EVENT INFO: Welcome to our annual Fredericksburg Margarita Festival. Welcome home! Please be patient if arriving midday, SATURDAY. Noon until 4 PM is the BUSIEST time and you will likely experience lines during that time. We always encourage guests to come early by noon 12 PM (We OPEN at 12 PM (sometimes a little early) and CLOSE at 10PM) or attend AFTER 4 PM to avoid lines. But mind you, VIP Margarita and Food service ends at 6 PM (or when SOLD OUT). WARNING: We ain’t fancy. Whoaaaa Trigger, whoa! Manage your expectations cowboy. This is a casual Festival celebrating the Margaritas we LOVE with a down home Texas twist! Please don’t come expecting a Ritz Cartlon in Dallas! Take a breath and get ready to enjoy the country! Goats. Chickens. Weird Neighbors. And Mo’! Our VIP Area is marked on the VIP Tables closest to the Polo Field. After 6PM, all guests are encouraged to head over the Bankersmith Dance Hall and Saloon. This is a little place, population 0, with lot’s of Texas character (AND characters). We have about a half a dozen local artists and bands playing throughout Saturday and will have a small, fun kids area with farm animals for the kids! Just like most Texas Dance Halls (from Luckenbach to Gruene) we have NATURAL HVAC and air conditioning. What’s that? A Hill Country Breeze and Ice Cold Beer. That’s it. So come prepared. Dress appropriately. VIP Drink and Food service will run from 12 PM until 6PM (or until sold out)! Do NOT mosey on in after 6PM looking for VIP benefits other than the smell of FREEDOM!
