Please don’t let the slow pace of West Texas fool you, there’s plenty of activity in this desert. A variety of events in Alpine and the West Texas area are always popping up, from weekly farmer’s markets to the grand and glamorous Artwalk in November. Mark your calendars, book your rooms and plan to take in the happenings about town.

Every Week:

  • Check out Live Music most weekends at Alpine’s beloved Railroad Blues, our very own “world famous beer & wine tourist trap”.
  • The Historic Murphy Street Saturday Market – Alpine’s small Farmers Market is held every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. in the courtyard of the Hotel Ritchey (corner of 5th St. and Murphy St.). Get fresh veggies all year plus baked goods, crafts and more. Our little market has been getting bigger and better every week!
