Pies Galore! Annual Pie Social from the Wimberley Institute of Cultures
April 8th, 2017



Fun for the Whole Family

If you love delicious pie and are looking for fun in the warmth of an early spring day in Texas, the Wimberley Pie Social is the event for you! This year, the Wimberley Pie Social will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 8th on the grounds of the Winters-Wimberley House, immediately adjacent to the Community Center.
This delightful event began in 1990 when a small group of men and women of the Wimberley Valley assembled at the Dobie House on Old Kyle Road near Wimberley Square to provide the community with an old fashioned "pie social." It is now an annual family event offering pie slices for sale from several hundred home-made pies along with other foods, musical entertainment, competitive pie baking contests, a quilt raffle, and items for sale.
Admission is free, and everyone is invited to come and be a part of the event. Each year, the many pies are donated by local cooks for sale by the slice under the pie canopies, and they are there for all to enjoy. Also available for purchase are hot dogs, chips, drinks, and snow cones. Part of the entertainment will take place when the winning pie in each category is auctioned off to the Pie Social attendees by the auctioneer. Anyone interested in submitting a pie for competition may get a submission form by clicking here to download one.
The Wimberley Pie Social is sponsored by WIC, the Wimberley Institute of Cultures, which is a non-profit organization formed to recognize and protect the natural, historical, archaeological, and cultural resources of the Wimberley Valley. WIC strives to preserve these resources through educational and social activities for both young and adult members of our community.





  Join The Starlight Symphony Orchestra - "Shapes"
Featuring the Young Artist Competition Winners



Starlight Symphony Orchestra Presents "Shapes" - Austin & Wimberley

Discover the fascinating "Shapes" of music with the Starlight Symphony Orchestra as it presents an outstanding concert in the series themed, "All I Need to Know I Learned From the Symphony." Enjoy the variations in sound characteristics between large-scale orchestral works, such as Wagner's Prelude to Die Meistersinger, Sant-Saens' Phaeton, Op. 49, and Suk's Toward a New Life, and a smaller beautiful, predominately strings piece, Sibelius' Valse Triste, Op. 44. Exceptional talent shines as the winners of the Young Artists Solo Competition perform their virtuoso pieces with the orchestra. Margaret Seo, performing Bruch's Violin Concerto, Movement 3, and Jiyee Ahn, performing Wieniawski's Polonaise Brilliante, masterfully demonstrate how musical shapes can be molded by each individual instrument.
The Starlight Symphony Orchestra concerts are always free and open to the public.

  Walt Wilkins, Drew Owen and Owen Temple at Blue Rock - April 13th



Walt Wilkins, Owen Temple and Drew Kennedy at Blue Rock


Blue Rock Concert with Walt Wilkins, Owen Temple and Drew Kennedy


San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). - The Telegraph

"[Owen] Temple's songs are sophisticated and enlightening, offering a view of the Texas west that's akin to Dave Alvin's meditations on mid-century California. He writes with a folksinger's eye, observing intimate, interior details of every day life, and painting big, mythological sketches..." - Hyperbolium

"Drew Kennedy deserves widespread acclaim... There's a sense of remorse and regret instilled in these songs, a pervading sadness that makes the material all the more compelling. Kennedy is a singer/songwriter whose songs reflect the struggles and concerns that burden nearly everyone's existence... There's tremendous optimism implied here... Indeed, with Wide Listener, and with every one of Kennedy's efforts so far, hearing is believing." - No Depression

Live Concert @ 7:300 PM CST, $30 + tx (100% goes to artists), coffee, tea, and desserts inc.

KEVIN and Dustin WELCH in concert at Susanna's Kitchen Coffeehouse!

It has been said that Kevin Welch “is probably thrown in the Country bin but if that scares you off think bigger and break down some walls.”  Without a doubt, he is one of those singer/songwriters who “will make you think while you listen.”
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Welch spent his early career in Nashville, writing songs for himself and performed by the likes of Waylon Jennings, Trisha Yearwood, and the Highwaymen. In 2008, Welch moved to the Texas Hill Country.  In early 2010, he self-produced his first solo record in 8 years, “A Patch of Blue Sky.” These days, when not touring, Welch teaches songwriting workshops at his home in Wimberley.
Dustin was raised in Nashville, among the sons and daughters of songwriters, with the distinct advantage of living and learning from the very musicians who made the music they listened to.  After moving to Texas, Dustin released his first album, “Whiskey Priest,” followed by “Tijuana Bible.”  He plays and tours on his own, with his band, and more than ever before, with his father Kevin.  The highlight of Dustin’s active schedule is hosting a weekly songwriting and guitar workshop in San Marcos for Armed Forces veterans.
Doors open by 7:00 pm, concert begins at 7:30 pm. Tickets at the door: $20 for adults, $5 kids under 18. Pizza, nachos, tamales, fabulous desserts, coffee and sodas available for purchase. Proceeds benefit The Barnabas Connection, Operation Good Shepherd, and Mother's Day Out scholarships for low income working mothers.

A well-kept secret among those who love to eat fresh from the garden, but don't want to contend with the hassle and expense of garden maintenance in the rocky hill country "soil."  CLICK FOR MORE»
