ArtWalk is a monthly arts festival presented by The Center for Contemporary Arts every second Thursday in downtown Abilene. This month, The Center joins The Western Heritage Classic to provide a rich, West Texas cultural experience for our community. ArtWalk: Cowboy Up! kicks off the four-day Western Heritage Classic which features activities designed to embody the essence of cowboy lifestyle and history. The annual Western Heritage Parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. in downtown Abilene. Following the parade, head down to the corner of North 1st and Cypress Street for the Western Heritage Street Dance with the band Muddy Creek. Downtown art galleries and museums will be open. All is free and family-friendly! For more information visit center-arts.com and select Cowboy Up! under the ArtWalk menu.
