If you’re headed to the Hill Country this summer, plan your trip for June 20th and 21st, for the Stonewall Peach Jamboree and Rodeo, the finest slice of redneck Americana one will ever experience. The 53rd Annual Peach Jamboree, Parade and Rodeo is Friday and Saturday. There’s an awesome small town rodeo and dance each night and they even let democrats in.

The Peach Parade meanders through town Saturday morning at 10 am. Garrison Brothers Distillery will have a float in the parade — look for the ugly boys with beards and the pretty girls without them  — and we’re sponsoring the Bull Riding at the rodeo. If this all sounds hokey as hell to you, well, GET OVER IT AND PUT YOUR BOOTS ON!

Immediately after the parade, at noon, everyone is invited back to Garrison Brothers Distillery for a fried chicken lunch in our barrel barn. Come early though because we will run out of chicken and lunch is first come, first-served. We’ll have the gravelly Gary Berg and his gorgeous granddaughter Bailey Renee playing off the back porch at The Barrel Barn. And we’ll be auctioning off some of the most beautiful whiskey and wine barrels you’ve ever seen.

Lunch is BYOB and we’re asking for $20 a person. We will donate most of the proceeds to The Hye Preservation Society. The “boys round here” bought the first 150 tickets so only 100 tickets remain available. When it’s sold out, it’s sold out. You can buy tickets at Just click on the box that says WINNER, WINNER CHICKEN DINNER.

Since we’ve got tons of chicken to fry, there are no refunds on tickets unless you get run over by a parade float.

We’ll also announce this on our Facebook page in the next few days at Garrison Brothers Facebook Web Page. But by then, tickets may already be sold out.

We hope to see ya’ll here. God bless America!

Kind regards,
