Now in its 37th season, the Armadillo presents an amazing array of original work by artists and artisans, from affordable gifts to high-end art. It’s the city’s favorite shopping party, with live music and a full bar. Gift givers, art collectors and music lovers can grab a beer, dance a bit and have fun while they shop.
The 2012 event will feature more than 160 artists and artisans exhibiting their latest work. At least three music acts, local luminaries and exciting new talent, will perform each day. The Armadillo will once again be virtually across the street from the former site of its birthplace, Austin’s famed Armadillo World Headquarters.
Clay McClinton [country] will be on at Noon.
