What began 25 years ago as a modest open house for local art galleries has grown up over the years into a city-wide celebration of art and music. More than two dozen displays of original artwork will open all over downtown Alpine—many accompanied by live music—in permanent galleries as well as new exhibits popping up just for the weekend.

A host of food trucks and other vendors give a street-fair energy to the event, highlighted by the Art Car Parade at noon on Saturday.

As night falls, live music moves to the foreground with multiple performances at popular Texas music roadhouse Railroad Blues, the Ole Crystal Bar and other venues.

The 25th ARTWALK is shaping up to be one of the best ever, as founder/director Keri Blackman pulls out all of the stops to make this landmark year a memorable one.
