Rip’s Sip and Toss August 10th

Join the Eastland Chamber of Commerce on the Downtown Square in Eastland for Rip’s Sip & Toss End of Summer Festival! This event includes another Wine Festival, the rescheduled State Sanctioned Doubles Regional Cornhole Tournament, live entertainment, and food trucks!

Due to inclement weather during the Rip’s Ribs Cook Off, we were unable to host the State Sanctioned Cornhole Doubles Regional Tournament. Since portions of that event had to be rescheduled or ended up having a lower attendance than anticipated due to weather, we would like to bring the citizens of Eastland County and beyond a fun End of Summer Festival on Tax Free Weekend. Residents and tourists will be encouraged to shop local during the day and then join us for a fun evening on the Square.

Inside the historic Lyric Theatre from 3:00-8:00pm, we will be hosting another Wine Festival with live entertainment! You can purchase tickets prior to the event for $15 for 10 tastings and receive a souvenir glass or at the door for $20. Pre-sale tickets are available at the Eastland Chamber of Commerce located inside the Connellee Hotel & Civic Center, online at (direct link above), or from a Chamber Board Member. Please note that souvenir glasses are on a first come first serve basis for those purchasing tickets at the door. At this time, the Wine Festival will include tastings from Spirit of Texas Winery of Early, D’Vine Wine Granbury Texas of Granbury, Messina Hof Grapevine Winery of Grapevine, Lost Oak Winery of Burleson, Blue Duck Winery of Albany, Rancho Loma Vineyards of Coleman, and Lucky Vines Vineyard & Winery of Dublin. If you are a winery that would like to join in on the festivities, please contact us at 254-629-2332 or at for more information.
