Downtown transforms into the Wild West for Houston Street Fair and Market




More than 35 Longhorn cattle will mosey down Houston Street accompanied by the Texas A&M Calvary to kick off the rodeo-themed Houston Street Fair and Market (HSFM) on Saturday, January 31. The cattle drive will begin at 11:00 a.m. at IH-35 and Houston Street and travel east to the Alamo.

 

“If you haven’t had an opportunity to attend the Houston Street Fair, then I invite you to join us this month,” said Paula X. Stallcup, director of Downtown Operations.

The HSFM will follow immediately after the cattle drive and will run until 6:00 p.m. on the east side of downtown Houston Street from Broadway to the Alamo.

Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy Wild West activities such as chuck wagon cooking, pony rides, a buffalo show, and a petting zoo complete with pigs, ducks, chickens and goats. There will also be a mini mechanical bull for the children and live entertainment. In addition, the event will feature the Poteet Country Winery, local arts and crafts and pet adoptions through the City’s Animal Care Services.

This free event is open to the public. Free parking will be available on event day beginning at noon in the City’s St. Mary’s Street parking garage located at 400 N. St. Mary’s at Travis Street.
