San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts

The second Saturday of each month, two events take place along the Concho River in downtown San Angelo.

The first of these is "Old Town Second Saturdays." Old Town at El Paseo de Santa Angela is located near the river on Orient Street. Five historic structures have been re-located there for preservation purposes. As such, the area has been designated as an historic district illustrating early architectural styles for the San Angelo area. On the second Saturday of each month, artists, designers, and craft vendors showcase and sell their goods in this historic district.

Just across the street from Old Town is the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts (SAMFA). On the second Saturday of each month, SAMFA hosts "Family Day". On Family Day, entrance to the museum is free and different cultures are highlighted. This month, exhibits on Mexico were on display.
