Tablerock Festival of Salado began in January 1979 by a handful of public-spirited people from Salado, Belton, Temple and vicinity. Their aim was to promote the arts in Central Texas, but more than that was the desire to recognize and give exposure to the many talented, professional and semi-professional artists, actors and musicians who live and work here. The Tablerock Amphitheater was built on thirteen acres of land donated by the Goodnight family. It received its name, "Tablerock" from a very large flat rock in Salado Creek, which looked like a "tablerock" and was a favorite spot for the Salado College students to spend "academic" study time. From its austere beginning The Tablerock Amphitheater has grown to an outstanding outdoor production facility.
