Arts and Culture

Art is a way of life in Lubbock

In fact, this art hub was one of the first
Cultural Districts recognized by the State of Texas.

With more than 2,300 events each year,
we invite you to feed your creative spirit
and appreciate the finer things life has to offer.

In the Art Hub

Through the American Wind Power Center, National Ranching Heritage Center, Silent Wings Museum, Buddy Holly Center and more, Lubbock museums tell a unique story about history and culture in a way that seizes your attention and takes you on a journey.

Art and theater lovers have found Lubbock to be a haven. Home to the First Friday Art Trail and Lubbock Moonlight Musicals, just to name a few famous events, Lubbock is bursting at the seams with cultural creativity.

Live music can be heard from almost every door in the downtown Depot Entertainment District. The West Texas Walk of Fame and the Buddy Holly Center are proof of the talent cultivated in Lubbock, and this talent continues to grow through each generation and every strum on the guitar.

Immerse yourself in the arts and culture of Lubbock. There’s plenty to see, learn, hear and experience. Famously welcoming and warm, we invite you to let our historical and culturally rich city share its story with you.
