Bond's Alley Art Festival is one of the premier Art Festivals in Central Texas and dates back to 1964.​  This year's event will be June 6th & 7th, 2020 in Historic Downtown Hillsboro.  Festival hours are from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 9am to 3pm on Sunday.

The 2020 Featured Artist will be Texas legend, George Boutwell.


George Boutwell was Art Director for Texas Highways Magazine from 1966 to 1972 and became aware of the diversity of Texas during that time and this awareness has become the focus of his life's work. In 2006, Boutwell was given the title of "Official Texas State Artist" by the Texas Commission on the Arts and the Texas State Legislature.  George is a great friend of Hillsboro and has been a part of Bond's Alley for decades

now.  We're honored to have George back in 2019.

The Art Festival will be housed again in Historic Bond's Alley, which is enough reason for a visit.  Bond's Alley dates back to the first days of Hillsboro and is situated between Bond's Emporium, home to Overflow Coffee Co. and so much more, and Hillsboro's oldest building, the Old Rock Saloon.  


​Artists and Artisans will fill Bond's Alley on Saturday and Sunday, but visitors will also have a chance to shop the many craft and food vendors along Gould Street, just off of Bond's Alley.  ​There will also be art activities for the children.
