Always taking place the second weekend in April, the Bluebonnet Festival draws 30,000 people annually to Burnet, Texas. Each year, activities are added to keep the festival exciting for first-time visitors as well as repeat festival fans. Once you have attended your first Bluebonnet Festival, you’ll be hooked!

Burnet is deep in the Texas Hill Country, in the Highland Lakes region. The city is easily accessible from all directions, located at the intersection of Highways 281 and 29. Surrounded by sparkling lakes and rugged hills, it’s a scenic drive from all directions. But there is a special magic to the Hill Country when bluebonnets carpet the roadside, hills and pastures in blue at the height of the wildflower season.

Burnet is considered one of the best places in Texas for viewing wildflowers.

When: April 9th–11th
