We are excited and honored here at the Hill Country Portal web site, with the double-mention and linking to our web site in Houston Chronicle's article: "This spring, visit the Hill Country for Festival Lineup", by Alice Adams, February 27, 2015, in their print version and on-line at: www.chron.com/news/article/This-spring-visit-the-Hill-Country-for-festival-6105918.php

Specifically, this article references two of the Portal's focus topic pages: Houston Chronicle Other focus topics are available through the Portal menu system, covering areas such as hunting, motorcycling, quilting, major festivals and events, live entertainment, real estate, and many more.

Major news agency references, such as the two above, to our Hill Country Portal help spotlight our wonderful area and promote local tourism, and increase the value of the Portal in being recognized as a regional leader and key resource regarding Hill Country-specific topics.

LOCATED AT: Entertainment Calendar & Venues

This calendar is self-managed by Entertainment Venues who enter their own live entertainment bookings to the calendar via the internet.

There is no cost to participate as an Entertainment Venue.

The public can see the Entertainment Calendar in one web location on the Portal, with a Hill Country-wide scope. Viewing access is free on the Portal web site.

This Entertainment Calendar is becoming a major business stimulus in this region. The public, for the first time, can see "what's going on", that is, who is playing and where on each day, along with the associated details (venue name, venue city, entertainer name, genre, date and time of event, cover charge, web links, contact phone & expanded live event description). This calendar should encourage greater participation by the public at these venues. The focus of this calendar is on live performances, and includes daily/nightly entertainment, shows, and productions with the entertainer/group specified and committed such that the public can expect to find them at the venue as specified on the Portal calendar.

There are business listings below the Entertainment Calendar for entertainment venues. Each business listing contains the business name, phone, postal address and hot web link, all at no charge.

Entertainers are also welcome to also submit their profile information, which we may then include as an entertainer listing on our focus page at Bands & Musicians

Festivals and major events will continue to also be presented on our separate calendar at Festivals

Naturally, on-line advertising opportunities are available on the Portal on this Entertainment Calendar page and other pages of the Portal.
