The village of Salado, Texas is prepping for a trio of fun and fascinating spring events starting with the annual Wildflower Pub Crawl, followed by its 17th annual Wildflower Art Fair and Festival as well as the Texas Wine and Rogue Art Fest. This bevy of activity will likely see a high level of traffic in the area, however, Salado is well prepared. And you and your friends should be prepared to get there once you see the schedule of weekend activities.
Things to Do
Salado Spring Events Set to Draw Great Turnouts for Beer, Wine, & All Things Fine (Art That Is)
The weekend of March 24-26 this year has a lot to offer for those willing to make the trek to the town with the oldest continuously running Texas hotel! The Stagecoach Inn was built as a stop for travelers along the Chisholm Trail (which happens to be celebrating its sesquicentennial this year) and remains operable to this day. And this is just one of the many things visitors can see on a trip to Salado this weekend, as you look to enjoy one, two, or all three of this weekend’s events, the first of which is the Wildflower Pub Crawl. Tickets range from $19.95 to $59.95 and can be found here, with the event kicking off at 6 p.m. (check this website for details). Prices include one free featured beer at each stop, of which there are five standard and one additional premium stop.

Commencing on March 25, Salado sets the scene for the Wildflower Art Fair and Festival, which is a family-friendly event featuring vendors that have extraordinary handcrafted art from throughout Texas, including woodworking, original paintings, fine jewelry, photography, and so much more. Food vendors will also be onsite, as well as live music at the pavilion in Pace Park on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. They throw a little rivalry into the mix here as well, at the “Edgy!” live art competition. A group of featured artists will create great works of art in their selected mediums and visitors can pick their favorite artist for a chance to win a competition piece.
