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.
