October Roundup

Winnsboro Center for the Arts is pleased to present October Roundup in conjunction with the Autumn Trails Festival to augment the celebration of the beauty of East Texas and its rich cultural traditions. Storytelling is an important tool for preserving those traditions. October Roundup provides a platform for telling the stories of East Texas Cowboys through art, music and poetry.

We thank Wood County Electric Charitable Foundation for its support of October Roundup
