29th Annual Trappings of Texas

PRESERVE THE TRADITION!
BECOME A SPONSOR

Dear Trappings of Texas Friends & Family! I can hardly believe that the Museum of the Big Bend will be celebrating its 29th anniversary of Trappings of Texas. We are proud of our tradition of bringing the best in custom cowboy gear and fine Western art to the Big Bend. Trappings of Texas Weekend is considered one of the best events in West Texas and has a draw that extends across the state!

Over the past 13 years, Trappings of Texas Weekend has grown and evolved and has become a nationally recognized exhibit and event. Each year, we are honored to be exhibiting not only several of the “up and coming” artists of today’s western art world but continue to represent many artists from the prestigious arenas of the Cowboy Artists of America (CAA) and the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association (TCAA).

This year, we have added a few new events to include Breakfast at the Shop and the Trappings Round-Up at the Flying W Ranch! With our new date, we are now able to make room for more celebrating and hope you plan on joining us!

So as you make your decision this year, please remember that your Trappings of Texas sponsorship is vital to our success at the museum throughout the year. The proceeds from Trappings directly supports the children and adult programs, as well as the exhibits at the museum throughout the year. The museum is committed to ensuring that no child be denied the opportunity to explore their horizons. And there is no better place for a child (of any age!) to explore, create and express themselves than at the Museum of the Big Bend.

I look forward to seeing you the 3rd weekend in April as we celebrate the 9th Trappings of Texas!
