Treaty Oak Distilling Co. in Dripping Springs on Tuesday September 8, 2015. JAY JANNER / AMERICAN-STATESMAN

Seek refuge from the first weekend of South by Southwest and take your kite out to soar in the endless blue sky of the Hill Country, where you can fly it with dozens of others.

Even if you don’t win one of the contests — with prizes for the Most Creative and Best Homemade Kites, judged and announced at 4 p.m. — you’ll still get to enjoy a Treaty Oak cocktail and a full menu of food, including charcuterie and sandwiches, on the spacious grounds of the distillery.

Details: Noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. Free. 16604 Fitzhugh Road, Dripping Springs.
