Gogh Crazy Scheduled in Kilgore
Celebrate and experience new art, wine tasting, and delicious cuisine at the 2020 KilGogh Art & Wine Exhibition February 21-22 in historic downtown Kilgore.
Returning for its eighth year with the theme "Gogh Crazy," it is the biggest festival to date with two locations and two days of activities. It kicks off on Friday from 6-9 p.m. in the Texan Theater and Old Post Office on South Kilgore Street. Tickets are $30 and provide attendees the opportunity of first viewing the art, entertainment, delicious food from the Kilgore College Culinary Arts, and wine tastings from local East Texas wineries.
The first 100 tickets purchased receive an exclusive KilGogh wine glass, perfect for sampling from the eight wineries on the night as well as a special memento from a wonderful evening.
The art exhibition is open to the public for free on Saturday from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. This is the perfect opportunity to talk with the artists at their booths and to purchase a piece or two. There are also art workshops taking place on Saturday in the Old Post Office.

KilGogh attracts artists and visitors from across East Texas, the Shreveport/Bossier area, Dallas/Fort Worth, and the Austin area. Started by local art enthusiasts, this event has grown each year since its inaugural event in March 2013 and is now managed by the Kilgore Main Street program.
