Spring Ho Festival 2022 - Let Freedom Spring

Monday, July 4, 2022

The annual Spring Ho Festival will take place July 4-10, 2022 in Lampasas, Texas.

The Spring Ho Festival began from an idea conceived by Lampasas residents Milton Boone and Gary Martin in 1972. Totally supported by volunteers, Spring Ho has evolved from its original second full weekend in July roots to now encompassing Monday through Sunday, with each day brimming over with activities. The Spring Ho Festival continues as an all volunteer group supported not only by Lampasas and Lampasas County residents, but by those far beyond!


What can you expect at Spring Ho?

What is there to do, well, there's the Spring Ho Beauty Pageant, the Hayloft Party Talent Contest, the Kiddie Fishing Derby, the County Fair, the Keystone Square Museum special exhibits, the Spring Ho Carnival, a Dance Contest, the Arts & Crafts Fair, a Pet Parade, the Diaper Derby, a BBQ Cook off,... the Spring Ho Dance on the Square in the National Registered Historic District in Downtown Lampasas, the 10K & 1mile run, a huge Spring Ho Grand Parade, Washer and horseshoe Pitching contest, and loads music, clogging, singing in the Park and in Historic Downtown Lampasas and much more!  Oh, don't forget the 10k, 5k and 1 mile run! Here's a hint, they don't call Lampasas the "Start of the Hill Country" for no reason! Come on down, you can do it!


Lampasas and water have always had a tumultuous relationship. The historic May 1957 flood demolished a large portion of the town of Lampasas and almost destroyed the downtown business district.However, the beauty and benefits of the springs and Sulphur Creek far out weigh the havoc that can, and many times does result when the storm clouds gather and the creek rises! Lampasas without Hancock Springs, Hanna Springs, Cooper Springs and hundreds of other smaller springs as well as Sulphur Creek, well, it just wouldn’t be Lampasas.


Come on down to Lampasas the second full weekend in July for some fun at Spring Ho! You'll love it! Visit the spring-fed Hancock Swimming Pool (yep, bring your suit for some swimming). Visit Hancock Springs and watch as seventy gallons of water per second flows out! Don't miss the remains of the historic bathhouse and the beauty of the restored historic Hostess House. Visit beautiful historic Downtown Lampasas located in the National Registered Historic District and don't miss the fabulous art in Campbell Park!
