Fall Events in Georgetown

There is lots to do this fall in Georgetown. Having survived a scorching summer, now is the time to enjoy warm sunny days and balmy nights. Here are some great events that are coming up.

During the month of October the Georgetown Art Works has organized a juried show of paintings and photography. It will open October 3 with the public and artists invited to receptions at the Georgetown Library, 8th Street Studios, the Framers Gallery and Annarella Home.With over 80 pieces from artists all over Texas, this exhibit will run until October 30.

Get to know this exciting group, the Georgetown Art Works, visit their website and volunteer your support in a contribution of money, time or both. Their mission is to create an atmosphere that welcomes art and art education to Georgetown.
The Georgetown Palace Theater opens its 2008-2009 season with "The Producers" on Friday, September 26. Their productions equal any big city shows you will ever see. With awe-inspiring performers and talented directors, the Palace consistently delivers an entertaining evening. See their website for tickets and times.

That same weekend, September 26 and 27th, the Williamson Museum presents Go Up the Chilsom Trail. This is a great event for the family. There is an actual cattle drive with longhorns and a chuckwagon cookoff. Check out the website for a look at all the fun activities and times for the rodeo and the Saturday night concert.

For a change of pace the Georgetown Symphony Society starts its 2008-2009 season. Sorry, I'm late with this and their opening event is today, Sunday, September 14. But you can catch the rest of the season starting with Cliburn Finalist, Joyce Yang, October 26. For a listing of their entire season, information on tickets, and how to become a supporter go to their website.

October 4, enjoy the Taste of Georgetown. This year sees some changes in this event. It will be held in the newly renovated courthouse but will as always spotlight local Georgetown restaurants and Texas wineries. We have tickets available here at Annarella Home. Go to the Downtown Georgetown Association website for complete details.

Finally on October 25, downtown Georgetown will have the second City-Wide Garage and Sidewalk Sale. This was such great fun and successful when it was tried in the spring, its back.
We will be participating in the sidewalk sale aspect. It will be the last time our 1/2 off table will be seen until after the holidays. So make sure you stop by.

So much going on we've extended our hours. Now open til 8 on Friday and Saturdays. Before or after enjoying one of the fine restaurants downtown, stop in and say hi.

We always have fresh ideas for gifts and decorating.
