Two of our favorite events in Salado happen every single month! Every fourth Friday, select Salado boutiques and art studios stay open late to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for visitors. The 4th Friday Sip ‘n Shop features our legendary boutiques, shopping, wine, and treats, all open late on a Friday night – the perfect setting for a girls’ night out! The Royal Street Art Walk (or RAW, as it’s known around here) features our renowned working artists in their studio environment and fun, interactive activities. Experience the charm of Salado by attending the events separately or combine them to jump start your weekend in style.
