One Art-filled Fayette County Weekend. Two Big Shows.

For the first time, two Fayette County organizations have joined forces to create one art filled weekend. 

ARTWALK, a project of Arts for Rural Texas, is located on the historical town square in Fayetteville, and the Round Top Arts Festival is held inside the event barns at The Compound located at 2550 S. State Highway 237 in Round Top. These two juried shows are just a few miles apart and feature 100+ artists, overall. The collaboration

has blended two, historically fine shows into one big art filled weekend, creating the opportunity for visitors from further afield to stay in Fayette County over the weekend, taking advantage of not only the art, but all that is offered throughout the countryside from quaint and sophisticated B&Bs to fine art galleries, fine and countrified dining options and top notch music, performed in any number of venues from Round Top and Fayetteville to La Grange.
