Who is that masked man? Who is that masked man?

Whoo-hoo!  It's almost time for the Spring Hoedown!

On Saturday, April 4th, join us for a Spring Hoedown bigger than any party we’ve thrown before!  For the first time, the Hoedown will be held at our River Road Farm along the Colorado River where we grow our vegetables.  This location is just 10 miles East of the airport at 4008 River Road, Cedar Creek, TX 78216.

We will be kicking off the party with our very first Annual 5K Garden Gallop, as well as a ½-mile Kids’ Fun Run around the farm.  Race tickets include admission to the Hoedown, a buffet plate, and a JBG Garden Gallop T-shirt. A portion of this year’s proceeds will be donated to Farmshare Austin, a local non-profit encouraging the expansion of organic farming and food in Central Texas.

After working up an appetite during the run, guests are invited to re-fuel with a special farm-to-table buffet catered by Ironwood Icehouse, as well as live music and dancing. There will BBQ, local beer, and-of course- plenty of veggie options for non-meat eaters. Lick Honest Ice Cream is providing dessert, and we can’t wait.   Keeping with tradition, we will also be turning to you—our community—to bring a sweet dish for our dessert potluck.

Festivities will feature live music from local bands, Gumbo Ce Soir, La Tampiqueña (with a special appearance by Mr. Will), The Show and Tellers, and Out of the Blue — all performing on a brand-new stage, built especially for the occasion. There will also be lessons for those needing a little brush-up before hitting the dance floor. Per usual, we’ll have plenty of activities for the kids, and last (but certainly not least!) we’re having a whiffle-ball raffle where we’ll be giving away loads of great local goodies.
