 A Dickens Christmas: 12/2/17

Maverick’s will be hosting FREE pony rides Saturday December 2nd.  We will be asking for donations to support a powerful new program starting January 2018: Lockhart Literacy.  Austin Lessons and Tutoring, LLC will be hosting free community classes.  Children ages 2-7 pm and their parents and grandparents can participate in early literacy classes.  Folks who want to share Spanish language learning with their children can take advantage of classes for children of all ages.  We are proud to support Lockhart Literacy and Lockhart Spanish Classes.

Special Events: General Information

Maverick’s hosts groups large and small on a 400+ acre ranch with several ponds for fishing and varied topography that winds its way through hills and ravines dotted with quaint walking trails through the woods.  Add the immaculately kept professional dirt bike course we use for trail rides (or mountain bikes, motocross events and more) and you’ve got yourself a perfect backdrop for the special event of your dreams.

We work closely with local vendors and the entertainers, culinary masters, and amenity providers of your choosing.  Have ideas about a day of fishing, skeet shooting, western entertainment or petting zoo?  We’ve got you covered!  Other thoughts on activities with your individual flare for style?  Our mission is to make your dream event come true.  Tell us what you have in mind.  

See our October 28th Fun Day, a free event for the community of Lockhart.


Inspiring scenery sets your day in a rustic barn, an elegant tent, or simply out in the open under some good old Texas sunshine.  Our thoughtful local partnerships will help us provide you the cuisine and charismatic setting that suits your needs.  We aim to make sure that all of your senses are enlivened with the details of the country wedding you’ve imagined.  While we are happy to work with your pre-determined caterer, we have country cooking covered if you’d like to leave that part of the planning to us.  Our vendor partners provide guests with award winning Texan fare.  Be ready to eat big with juicy BBQ from the BBQ capital of the country.  For the more delicate palliate, enjoy cuisine that delights the senses along with the fine china to serve it.

Company Events

Team building and corporate events can be stressful.  Let us work with you and your event coordinator to develop the details of the day to provide the structure you need to make for a hassle-free event.  We will work closely with your coordinator to ensure that your individual needs are seen to.


When you want to get your family and friends together out in the country, you have an idea for your day.  What is it?  We want to work with you to provide the amenities that will help all of the guests in your group reconnect with the great outdoors.  We provide the venue for: Fraternity and Sorority Reunions, Family Reunions, Private School Class Reunions and more.

Improved Amenities

We are excited to be working with a new local venue with such a commitment to improving an already beautiful property.  Future improvements include a Gazebo, rustic cabins for camping, a floating dock and improved landscaping.  As plans for these amenities unwind we are excited to work with you to create the picture perfect day.  Maybe your color choice will make its way into the annual beds, paint the trim on a country shed, or line the wagon wheel decor of the entryway.
