SpringFest enjoyed a new home in 2013 and 2014 at The Backyard Amphitheater. The celebration continued with all of the traditional components in a new location. The Craft BrewHaus became a new attraction and was wildly successful with attendees enjoying the new craze of specialty craft beer from around the Hill Country and Austin area.
SpringFest returned to the Hill Country Galleria in 2015 - 2017 and we couldn't be happier to be back! The Craft BrewHaus has become one of the most popular attractions to the festival. Check out our new area Educate & Engage sponsored by Concordia University.
SpringFest will be held in the Hill Country Galleria in 2018! We look forward to celebrating SpringFest in one of our favorite shopping and family gathering places. See you April 28th!
