DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas (KXAN) — Music will continue flowing from the Nutty Brown Cafe in Dripping Springs for another year.

In August of 2015, Nutty Brown Cafe owner Mike Farr said the music venue was going to move to an 18.4-acre space in Round Rock after the 2016 season, but that date is getting pushed back to 2018.

The venue’s current location on US 290 in Dripping Springs was purchased by H-E-B in early 2015 but the company agreed to let Nutty Brown Cafe stay until they started developing the land. In a post on Facebook, the venue says H-E-B doesn’t have any immediate plans to develop the property, which allows the venue to continue operating their until their new location is ready.

“We intend for the 2017 season – our final year in our original location of 17 years – to be a year-long celebration of the very best live music in Central Texas,” said Farr in the Facebook post.

The venue’s new location will be at McNeil Park, which is right along Interstate 35, just south of University Boulevard. Once completed, the venue will have a larger capacity and more seating than the Dripping Springs location. The owner hopes to have the first show in Round Rock by spring 2018. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
