Every Thursday (3-6pm) and Sunday (9am-1pm): Galveston’s Own Farmers Market – Founded in 2012, Galveston’s Own Farmers Market is a weekly outdoor market hosted at the Museum that provides a direct connection to vendors creating and growing fresh whole foods including farms, ranches, bakeries, cheese-makers, and specialty-food producers.
October 11th (5:30-6:30pm): Yeehaw! Cowboy Culture Series: “The [True] History of Cowboys” – The ancestry of iconic, cattle-herding cowboys starts centuries before the American West—all the way back to the 8th century, when North Africans conquered Spain! “Cowboy Mike” Grauer will share cowboy truths and tall tales, different types of cowboys, and the diverse demographics of a cowboy crew.
October 28th (2-4pm): High Adventure Book Club – For the second book club meeting, please be prepared to discuss “Another Year Finds Me in Texas.” The only known diary from Civil War–era Texas written by a female Northerner, this previously unpublished journal offers a new perspective on daily life during the war. The diary’s author lived near Bellville, a few miles northwest of Katy.
