The Liberty Hill Spring Event, 2023

March 24th - 26th, 2023

No one person can do it all–no one group can do it all either!  Learn new skills and meet the people you need to know!!

Join us for fellowship, classes, training and challenges!

All groups are welcome! Vendors are encouraged! Come meet like-minded folks, learn something, teach something and be challenged!

Instructors and subject matter experts from across the pillars of preparedness will be on site to educate you and your families.

We hope you made it!

The Pillars of Preparedness

The Pillars of Preparedness are a set of categories to help you achieve a well-rounded plan for self-independence in difficult times.  Well, in all times really, because being prepared first and foremost gives you some peace knowing that when something scary comes around, you don’t have to panic or freak out – you’re prepared!

The Liberty Hill Spring Event will be held at Liberty Hill, a just over 100-acre, private family ranch outside of Bowie, Texas.  The property has a variety of wooded and open spaces, ponds and abundant wildlife.  Bowie is about a 1.5 hour drive NW of the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, and boasts the worlds largest Bowie Knife.


Dry camping can be made available for folks who would like to do so (no open fires please; additional fees apply – see ticket page).  For those less adventurous, there are 3 hotels in town (Best Western, Americas Best Value Inn, and Parks Inn).  There is also the OOAK RV Park and Campground which offers full hookups as well as primitive camp sites.


Do you have an organization or group that you would like to let people know about?  Do you teach self-reliance?  Do you have a product that attendees might be interested in?  We’ll have an area where you can set up a table or booth.  Space is limited and must be approved beforehand.  Please fill out the ‘Comments or Questions’ area on the registration page to get things set up before buying a Vendor ticket!
