What’s on the horizon for downtown Georgetown


Bicycle on the SquareExcitement is coming to Main Street! To start, Grape Creek Vineyards is planning to open its doors within a month. The design for the outdoor courtyard, where live music will be a mainstay, is in the final planning stages. The second floor will be dedicated to Wine Club Members and will offer exclusive activities and a self-serve wine bar.

Hungry, thirsty, and itching to do some shopping? Then The Georgetown Swirl, the annual fundraiser for the Main Street Façade and Sign Grant Program, is just what you’ve been waiting for. About a dozen downtown locations will be featured at this year’s event on March 2nd. Last year, The Swirl earned the Texas Downtown Association 2012 President’s Award for Best Promotional Event. Don’t miss it this year!

Speaking of The Swirl, Len and Judy Lester, owners of The Escape Fine Crafts & Gifts on the Square, are the honorary event chairpersons for the 2013 Georgetown Swirl.

Heard the tapping and hum of buildings in progress? Books on Tap, formerly known as Hill Country Bookstore, will be located on the corner of 8th and Austin and is expected to open this spring. After browsing your favorite book aisle, you’ll be able to grab a drink and enjoy the sunshine at the bookstore’s outdoor café seating area. And Thundercloud Subs is slated to open this spring as well.

Also, be on the lookout for the grand opening of the Art Center on April 1st, when visitors can browse monthly exhibits by internationally-recognized artists or learn from the best in one of the Working Classroom Artisan spaces.

Finally, get ready for this year’s Red Poppy Festival on April 27th and 28th. The band Restless Heart will be headlining that weekend.
