MayfestMay 5-6, 2017 The Museum of the New Llano Colony will be part of Mayfest this year on May 5-6, 2017. Find our booth to get your free hand fan -- just a little something to help you beat the heat while you're enjoying the festival.

While you're there, step back in time and get a free Mayfest souvenir -- we'll have our green screen set up where you can take as many pictures as you'd like using your own smart phone, then send them to a special email and they'll magically put you into one of our historic photos and send it back to your phone. For more information on Mayfest, call (337) 238-0783.

June 30-July 1, 2017 The Town of New Llano will host a 100 Year Celebration on June 30-July 1, 2017. It was 100 years ago, in 1917, when the Llano Co-operative Colony moved to this location where they survived for more than 20 years and laid the foundation for today's town. The event will be located under the trees at the New Llano Community Park and will feature live music, vendors selling arts & crafts and food, and a fireworks show after dark -- so bring your lawn chairs and spend the day. The Museum of the New Llano Colony will be open for the fun, so be sure and stop by. For more information, please call (337) 239-3670.
