Year Round Events

First Friday Art Walks every month of the year and Street Beat performances from May to September are just some of the many special activities that abound. Add to that carriage rides, bicycling events, walking tours, poetry readings, street performances and live art demonstrations and we think you may want to stay a bit longer. In addition, there are two well-known festivals each year: the Chile & Frijoles Festival, with more than 100,000 attendees, and the newer Wild, Wild West Fest. Other heritage events take place, such as Ghost Walks and the Yule Love It Downtown, Holiday Art & Shopping Crawl.
