YOLO (You Only Live Once) is a traveling show about entertainment, food and things to do across the great state of Texas.

Winnsboro was discovered by YOLO and then made a trip in February, 2018 to film some of the highlights of Winnsboro.  The episode showcases the Cultural Arts District, Winnnsboro Center for the Arts, Culture Club Gallery, Copperleaf, Thee Hubbell House, Bent Pine Galleries and more. YOLO has returned to Winnsboro on a few occasions to shine a spotlight on all the wonderful events this community has to offer including our latest annual gala, Renaissance Under the Stars!
