Wimberley – Wings Over Wimberley
September 13 - September 15
Austin isn’t the only place with an exciting festival in celebration of bats! Wimberley has our own large population of bats and is making plans to acknowledge them in a big way. Each evening thousands of these flying mammals create an awe-inspiring spectacle against the colored sky as they swarm from under the RR 12 Cypress Creek Bridge. They decorate our sunsets, inspire our artists, eat our mosquitos and add yet another fascinating dimension to the Wimberley Valley.
Beginning this year, Wimberley Valley Arts and Cultural Alliance (WVACA) is planning an exciting event to honor and celebrate this natural treasure. Wings Over Wimberley or “WOW” as it is affectionately called, will be a vivacious 3-day event full of music, art, food and fun celebrating the thousands of Mexican Free- tailed Bats who call Wimberley home.
From Friday, September 13 through Sunday, September 15, 2019 Wings Over Wimberley will attract visitors from near and far to see, learn about, and recognize the important role bats play in the Central Texas ecosystems. As they appreciate our bats, visitors and locals alike will be able to experience the artisans, one-of-a-kind shops, talented musicians, craft cuisine and cocktails, and unique lodgings that make Wimberley’s high-vibing culture so special.
