About Hays Happenings

What is Hays Happenings?

Hays Happenings is all about finding the FUN in Hays County! Whether it be in Buda, Kyle, San Marcos, Wimberley, Dripping Springs, Mountain City, or Driftwood. There are so many great events and happenings in our local area, and it is hard to keep up with all of them separately, so in late 2015 we created Hays Happenings to be a user-friendly resource for locals and visitors alike to find fun things to do in Hays County.

At Hays Happenings we also strive to promote local Hays County businesses and hope to encourage others to shop local first. We have some of the best local shops and businesses and shopping at them keeps our money local and in return helps the local economy.

We live here. We play here. We shop here.
