Inaugural “Music on the Mile” Festival Brings a Day of Local Live Music & Festivities

Michael McMullen on stage as Elvis

May 15th is going to go down in Boerne history as a big old fun time for all as well as the day that the Old Jail Museum opened its doors to the public. There will be a little something for everyone, so make plans to hit the Historic Hill Country Mile for a day filled with LOADS of live music, special beer features, and of course the opening of Boerne’s newest downtown attraction!

This epic day in downtown Boerne will kick off with the Aid the Silent 5K Run starting at Main Plaza. If you’re interested in starting your day with a little fitness, go ahead and register now or register on the day of the race at 7:00 am.

Music on the Mile

Music on the Mile is the brainchild of a group of local musicians, businesses, and arts supporters who wanted an annual event to showcase a diverse group of local musical talent while bringing people to Boerne’s beautiful, historic downtown. A family-friendly event, the lineup is a range of country to rock and will even feature covers from the greats such as Elvis and Johnny Cash. 

Enjoy a FULL lineup of live music in an assortment of venues! Feel free to grab a drink and hang out for the day or take your drink to go and bounce from one stop to the next. Remember, you CAN sip and stroll along the Hill Country Mile.

Pouring beer at Cibolo Creek Brewing CoOld Jail Pale Ale Trail

The Dodging Duck Brewhaus, Cibolo Creek Brewing Co., and Tusculum Brewing Co. have teamed up and agreed to make a unique brew of their own and name it “Old Jail Pale Ale”. Sip and walk along the trail (the Cibolo Trail to be specific) at your own pace while popping into the participating breweries. $1 for each pint sold that day will be donated to the Old Jail Museum. 

Once you’ve tried them all, head on over to the Old Jail for the festivities there. Participants that visit all three breweries and complete the “Old Jail Pale Ale Trail” will receive a super cool genuine authentic replica Sheriffs badge if they then visit the jail.

 A note on how to get here on May 15th…

Worried about the I-10 construction? Here are a couple of alternate routes that are beautiful hill country drives from the SA area to charming Boerne: 

  • From 1604, take Blanco Rd. north to Hwy 46, head West straight into Boerne. 
  • If you’re in West San Antonio, take Hwy 16 (Bandera Rd) north to 46 and head east into Boerne. 

This is a weekend you don’t want to miss!
