We have noticed, thru polling as you can see from the Official Solar Eclipse 2024 Texas Facebook group, that most folks do not want these “music festivals” that are popping up. Our events, however, will not have any “music line ups”. We have several other properties outside our main property at Equirina Fields Ranch that are specifically dedicated to the academic side of the eclipse for those that want to study the eclipse and do not want all the loud noise around. Our primary academic property is DEAD CENTER on the line of totality, overlooks beautiful Lake Buchanan, and provides some of the most amazing views you can imagine.
Our cause is a simple one. The federal government denied our county any federal broadband internet dollars due to a very gross mistake caused by a local Spicewood resident who thought they knew what they were doing and clearly didn’t. This has left A LOT of our lower income families with school children, and specifically the school children themselves, simply flat left out. We are putting on this event and will be donating a good chunk of our profits into this problem and resolving it so ALL of our school children can have an equal footing when it comes to internet and getting access to remote school and other learning resources that are simply only found online.
As they say, its all about location, location, location. This is exactly why we choose Equirina Fields Ranch to host our main eclipse event. We will have 30 different food vendors wrapped around the huge 100′ x 400′ arena with over 100 crafts and merchandise vendors just outside of it. Pretty much as big as a football field with 45′ high arched ceilings, it’s an AMAZING space. We will have a giant stage spanning the entire distance of the north end of the arena. (We have special plans for this which we’ll announce later in 2023.) Just a little over 100 acres, this amazing Central Texas Hill Country Ranch is a fully operational ranch (so please don’t disturb the livestock ). Just check out the venues section for more photos.
If your interested in booking a vendor space, either one of our premium vendor spaces around the arena, or one of our standard vendor spaces, there’s several important things to understand. First and foremost, only Lot #6 and Lot#7 are set at flat rate “Early Bird Specials”. However, the rest of our spaces are by auction only. So when you go to bid, the page will throw an error letting you know you have to login to bid.
Very similar to eBay, you just register your email and name, and it will drop you into your “My Account” page, and then you just simply have to navigate back to the lot page you were interested in to place a bid. Please be sure to add your billing and shipping addresses in as should you win one of the auctions on one of our auctioned spaces, your welcome kit will be shipped there.
Go Stargazing, Ltd
We are pleased to be working with the folks from Go Stargazing, Ltd who will be hosting many workshops on how to photograph and film the eclipse as well as premium guided stargazing tours on Saturday and Sunday nights. This promises to be an amazing collaboration for our event and our guests alike. Make sure you check back to our website news feed often for Official Announcements on this part of our event. Some of their people where at the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse in Oregon so they have direct and in-depth experiences with eclipses. Unlike a lot of other folks who claim they can teach you, these folks have actually done it before, many times in the past, and travel the world filming eclipses.
We currently only have 1 single Premium RV lot left that include hookups, INCLUDING FIBER FED INTERNET! Our primitive RV lots do have some pretty awesome wifi, not like at a hotel. Our Tent & Vehicle spaces are the most economical of course and right now are on flat rate early bird specials. All bookings includes all 4 nights, April 5th – 9th, 2024. Check in time will be 12 noon and check out time on the 9th of April is at 3PM. We expect all guests and vendors and to be off property so that our staff can get going on the cleanup process.
