2019 Burnet Bluebonnet Festival

"The Most Exciting Small-Town Festival in Texas" is celebrating 36 years. The 2019 Burnet Bluebonnet Festival is April 11-14.
The festival is one of the hallmark celebrations of spring and our state flower with bike rides, a fun run, lots of music, a carnival, a doghouse race (yeah, you read that right), and even a wiener dog race. The list could go on and on.
The headquarters for the event is the courthouse square in Burnet, but you'll find a few things scattered about the town.
