Where Every Family Matters

Spring Hill’s First-Ever Founders Day is May 7

Music, food, fun and agricultural history at this free event at Rippavilla Plantation.

The City of Spring Hill holds its first Founders Day Celebration on Saturday, May 7, in honor of everyone who has made — and, today makes — the city such a friendly and interesting place.

The Parks and Recreation department event takes place from 3 – 9 p.m. at the historic Rippavilla Plantation. There is no charge for admission.

Everyone is invited to enjoy this rain-or-shine event that features live music, food trucks, exhibits, games, and other hands-on activities for people of all ages. The evening capstone is an outdoor concert near the amphitheater at Rippavilla. Live music begins at 5 pm.

“What better way to kick off the summer months, meet new friends and learn more about our wonderful city,” said Kayce Williams, the director of Parks and Recreation. “This is a free, family event for all of us to celebrate and learn more about Spring Hill’s rich agricultural history.”

Live music performers include Brother Maven, Erin Enderlin, Brice Long, Phillip White and Leslie Satcher.

Confirmed food trucks include the Spice is Right, Smokey Dawggs Gourmet Hot Dog Co., Common Law Brewing Co. Taproom, Little Cancun on the Go, Ooh La La New Orleans Style Shaved Ice, Taste of Aloha, and CD’s Barbecue. There will be a sizable display of antique tractors.

There is a surprise giveaway for the first 200 attendees who arrive at the Saturday event.
