The event will feature a variety of activities suitable for different age groups.
This free, full-day event celebrating the National Day of the Cowboy has grown into a beloved annual Briscoe tradition, which serves to honor and preserve the legacy of cowboys, cowgirls, vaqueros and other American pioneers.
The family-friendly festival has something for everyone.
The youngest in the herd are likely to enjoy diversions such as a scavenger hunt, stick-pony barrel racing, horseshoe toss, dress-up and balloon animals, along with a storytime centered around important figures in Western history. Sculpting, saddle- and spur-making, rawhide braiding and lassoing tutorials will be available for older buckaroos, along with live music from local country band Clint Tomerlin & The Turnarounds.
Chuck Wagon Cooking will serve up peach cobbler and beans to accompany assorted Wild West-themed grub from San Antonio's award-winning food truck Benjie's Munch.
Free, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, July 23, Briscoe Western Art Museum, 210 W. Market St., (210) 299-4499, briscoemuseum.org.
