ABOUT US

Wimberley has long been a muse to an array of artists. This quaint community with its breath-taking natural beauty inspires creativity and has become a magnet for arts and culture throughout the region. The arts – visual, performing, literary and culinary – are widely represented in the Wimberley Valley, and
have been for many generations. 


The Wimberley Valley Arts and Cultural Alliance was formed in 2013 by nearly two dozen businesses and organizations that work to promote the arts and culture in Wimberley. With the support of the Wimberley Valley Chamber of Commerce, which believes that art and culture foster economic viability,
WVACA was granted 501(3)c status in 2014.
 
WVACA applied for and was granted Cultural District Designation from the Texas Commission for the Arts in 2015. 

 

Wimberley was designated as a Texas Film-Friendly Community in 2019.  Click HERE for more info.
 
Our general meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at Middleton Brewing.  We'd love to have you join us!
