WHIMSY & WONDER
The Liberty Hill Interactive Art & Music Experience
May 15 | 6-10pm
Downtown Liberty Hill
Free Admission, Free Parking, Food available for purchase
After a year of canceled festivals, the City of Liberty Hill is proud to host Whimsy & Wonder on May 15th from 6-10pm in downtown Liberty Hill. Main Street will transform into a wonderland that stirs the imagination and indulges the senses at every turn.
At Whimsy & Wonder, expect the unexpected as you wander through an eclectic fusion of everything whimsical and wonderful! Live art demonstrations and live music will keep you entertained as you enjoy wine samples and food from local restaurants. Six bands will play their hearts out, with Big Wy’s Brass Band kicking off the festivities, and Dale Watson finishing the party with an after-show.
Main Street, from Quick Service Garage down to the Water Tower Parking Lot, will be filled with performers, stilt walkers and local artisans. World-renowned Magician Cody S. Fisher will wow visitors with street magic, and a strolling caricature artist will draw guests on the spot. Visitors can take photos in front of an interactive neon Photo Booth, send old-fashioned postcards home to friends, and try their hand at drawing a live model. Festival goers will be able to watch live art demonstrations including a tortilla artist, sidewalk chalk artists and Austin’s very own Dirty Car Artist, Scott Wade, in action.
Amateur and professional artists and musicians are invited to participate in the Open Mic Show & Go, which will take place on the Main Stage from 6-8pm. Guests can sign up for a 3-minute slot to show off their most artsy talents—sing a song, play an instrument, recite a poem, or show a piece of art.
A children’s Imagination Garden will house interactive art and music exhibits. The Imagination Garden will also feature shows by Hideout Theater throughout the evening. Hideout has been tickling the funny bones of Central Texans for 12 years through improvised comedy where unique stories unfold based on the suggestions of the kids in the audience.
The grassy field behind the Stubblefield Building will house a Wine Tasting Lounge, complete with vintage lounge furniture, music by harpist Sarah Hall, various wine samples, and a unique bartender twirling through the lawn wearing a skirt holding glasses of champagne.
Whimsy & Wonder is an event like none other. Visitors can interact with artists, musicians and street performers, while being dazzled with magical opportunities to create, enjoy and be entertained. The evening promises to be a memorable experience for all ages.
Admission and parking for Whimsy & Wonder is free. Food and a wide variety of unique art items are available for purchase. Guests can park at Liberty Hill Elementary School, Fellowship Church, and Cross Tracks Church. Pedicab drivers will be downtown to transport visitors from downtown street parking and parking lots.
