The second weekend of any month is always a good time to visit Boerne. There are several events that regularly take place on the second weekends, and no matter what you’re interests are, there is something for you! With everything from shopping to live music, you are sure to have a blast getting your Boerne experience. What’s more – there is no admission fee for any of these events! We hope you’ll come out one second weekend and enjoy all the charm that Boerne has to offer.
Main Plaza becomes the home of this outdoor market on both Saturdays and Sundays of the second weekend of the month. Hundreds of booths line up ready to share their Texas Hill Country style crafts and goods with you. Find home décor, jewelry, clothing, handbags, art, plants, collectibles, antiques and SO much more – all with Hill Country flare! The aroma from delicious food trucks and the resounding strum of live music always accompanies this event as well!
When you step into this historic home, you’ll feel as though you’ve traveled back in time. Built in the late 1880s, the Kuhlmann-King Museum is located just behind Boerne City Hall, and boasts a transcending historical experience for all who enter through its doors. Tour guides from the Boerne Area Historical Preservation Society take you through the life and home of William Kuhlmann and his family, one of Boerne’s original German settlers!
Second Saturday Art Beat
Art and culture meet small-town charm in this monthly fine-art event! Beginning at 10am, Boerne’s art galleries team up to make viewing and purchasing art a fun and exciting experience. From 4pm-8pm, hors d’oeurves and wine are served, elevating the evening’s affair while also satisfying your palate’s sense of adventure!
What started out as the “Porch-Picking Bluegrass Jam” at The AgriCultural quickly turned into a crowd that just couldn’t fit on the porch – so they moved it to a larger spot on the property! Its popularity has continued to grow. Pickers and spectators bring their instruments and enjoy each other’s company the good old-fashioned way – with music and a jovial spirit.
