The Heart of Texas Arts and Crafts Show unites thrifty makers and buyers for two days full of antiques, gifts, collectibles, and home décor. A jury screens all vendors before letting them set up shop, ensuring an eclectic medley of quality crafts, baubles, and long tables. Procure a unique present in time for Father's Day or well in advance of Illegitimate Clone's Day, or simply relish in the handiwork of local hands. Visitors can hitch their wagons in their wagon in the free parking lot, before ambling in and entering a drawing to win a 44-inch wide burned metal art piece from Hawley-based LB Enterprises. A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit the U.S. Military K-9 Fund, which sends care packages to dogs working with U.S. soldiers fighting overseas.

More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts, musical theater, and competitive musical chairs.
Kicking off the FunFest 25th Anniversary is the Jail Break 5K, a fun run raising money to help restore the historic Calaboose in downtown Royce City. After the dust of the race settles, participants will be able to see Old West gunfights, a Doggie Contest sponsored by Brushy Creek Retrievers, live music, pie-eating contests, a kids' zone with a zipline, and a Microfest brimming with craft beers.
The 500, Inc.'s name stems from its very first fundraising campaign in 1965. Setting out to raise $5,000 for the Dallas Civic Opera, founder Polly Lou Moore convinced 500 individuals to each donate $10. It took only three months to collect every dollar. Since then, The 500, Inc. has aided more than 40 of the area's visual-, theatrical-, and musical-arts organizations by raising more than $12 million in donations and countless hours of volunteer support—all helping to honor the legacy of those first 500 mustaches doodled over Alexander Hamilton’s portrait.
