March ushers in a change of seasons in Llano County, and that means more events and outdoor activities. March 2023 offers plenty to do here, indoors or out. Learn about earth art, catch a local theater production, check out a fiddler competition, say “Happy Birthday” to a beloved state park, savor the sights and smells of a chuck wagon cook-off, and come to a downtown garage sale to buy, sell, or both. Make the most of your time in Llano County and come back soon.
