See also

Texas Independence Day is Sunday, March 2, and there’s no better place for proud Austinites to celebrate the historic occasion than in Gruene, Texas. Join the fun at Gruene’s fifth annual celebration (2014), commemorating 178 years of the state’s independence.

Come to the Gruene Historic District and enjoy free live music all day at Gruene Hall. Kick up your heels as Amber Digby performs from 12-3pm, Mike & the Moonpies from 3-6pm, and Cody Jinks from 6-9:30pm.

Make sure you’re there by noon, so you can commemorate the occasion with 178 cent select domestic longnecks until 1pm at Gruene Hall, the Gristmill, Mozie’s, Cantina del Rio and The Grapevine.

Shops in Gruene are getting into a festive mood, also, by offering savings of 17% off sales of $17.80 or more from 11am to 6pm. Browse at Lone Star Texas Eclectic, Cotton Eyed Joes, The Company Store, Pookie Jane’s, Gruene General Store, Gruene With Envy, GiddyUp Gruene, Element 29 and Tipsy Gypsy; and when you find that special item claim your discount.

If listening to music, shopping, and walking around give you a hearty appetite, head to the Gristmill or Mozie’s for $17.80 Texas T-bones, or savor $17.80 fajitas for two at Cantina del Rio.

While you’re browsing enjoy free live tunes by Sylvia Kirk Duo in the Grapevine Garden (Noon-3pm) and free live tunes by Bo Porter on the Gristmill stage (Noon-3pm). Whatever you do, don’t forget your boots and wide-brimmed cowboy hat. If you’re celebrating Texas Independence day, you should look like a Texan, don’t you think?
