2021 Bond's Alley

Art Festival

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 5th & 6th, 2021 in Historic Downtown Hillsboro. Festival hours are from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday.

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 what was once Texas' Oldest Pharmacy, T.B. Bond Pharmacy, and Hillsboro's oldest building, the Old Rock Saloon. Come this year and see the new life at the T.B. Bond Pharmacy building as it has been transformed into the T.B. Bond Emporium and now houses the best coffee shop in Texas, Overflow Coffee Co!

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

Sheri Hemrick is the 2021 Bonds Alley Art Festival Featured Artist.  Sheri is a Hillsboro native trained at the New York Institute.  Sheri’s goals for photography are to capture things in God’s creation that most people might overlook, to document life in Hill County, and to capture memories for people to cherish for a lifetime. You can follow her most current work on Facebook. Her website can be found at www.gotpictures.us
Sheri’s photos have been published in several places, including ZooBorns, Connect Magazine, Connections Magazine, Bosque Living Magazine, Billboards and ads for Cameron Park Zoo, Power Source Magazine, 1st Responder Magazine, TexAppeal Magazine, Waco Today, Texas Parks and Wildlife publications, Texas Highways, Texas Monthly, Cover of the YellowBook – Johnson County, Texas DPS Annual Report, Ft.
