We are very proud to announce this important award! Being recognized by Texas Travel Awards for Freedom Fest is a great honor. We are very proud of our community and this very special event. Thank you to everyone who helps us each year during Freedom Fest. We are especially grateful to our sponsors. Your commitment to our community is reflected in this award. We will be publishing our sponsorship information very soon. 

We won the best community event in the Texas Travel Awards for Freedom Fest!

It's Lee County Junior Livestock Show season. We know everyone is excited to get their projects ready to go. We look forward to seeing everyone.
We still have one more week of early voting... Giddings Public Library is where you go in Giddings to cast your ballot. They are open tomorrow from 7am-7pm. 

And it is Leap Year... that means you get an extra 24 hours to do great things. We are hoping to see lots of Leap Day of Kindness activities. Let us know when you do with a post on our Facebook or Insta pages. Give us the #leapdayofkindness and #giddingstx. We keep up with our social pages engagement to see which posts are looked at the most. You are the best source of local information for us and we do read the posts. It is hard to believe that February is already almost over. We never really understand how quickly time goes by.

We are happy to share with our community the information that is available about the upcoming solar eclipse. There will be an increase in traffic on the weekend of April 5th through the 8th. We expect our restaurants to be full and many other retail locations. We are hopeful that those who are traveling to the path of totality in the hill country will have plenty of supplies to last over the weekend. We do however recommend that our local community make plans to be fully stocked before the event. The total solar eclipse will be happening west of Austin, so that means we will have an uptick in visitor traffic through our city. This website has great information about the path of totality and when to expect the full total eclipse.
