High Plains cuisine, Broadway shows, wine festivals, and musical performances are just a few reasons Lubbock needs to be one of your destinations this year.

With techniques learned in kitchens across Europe, Chef Finn Walter utilizes local ingredients to create dishes worthy of a Michelin Star at The Nicolett in downtown Lubbock. And, at the No. 8 Best BBQ Joint in the state, Evie Mae’s serves a true taste of Texas barbecue.  

Mark your calendars for the inaugural Texas Wine, Hops & Shops Wine & Beer Festival on Saturday, April 23! Over 50 vendors, wineries and breweries from across the state will gather at McPherson Cellars to toast to Texas wine and beer. Patrons will experience a lineup of regional vendors, local food trucks and Lubbock-based musical talent. Don’t miss a Broadway performance this year at The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences with the award-winning production of Jersey Boys and a performance by the titan of comedy, Tim Allen.

The best way to see downtown is through the newcomers helping revitalize the area. Auld Brewing Company, located on Broadway, maximizes the pour of the brew; glasses are filled from the bottom, which eliminates the foam at the top. Over at Dirk’s, Chef Cameron West showcases a simple menu consisting of crispy fried chicken and tasty sides to complement the local art of late grandfather, Dirk West.  

And, a long-time Lubbock favorite, Flatland Calvary will take the stage at Cook’s Garage on Saturday, April 9. With a devoted fan base and iconic sound, you don’t want to miss this show! An unforgettable adventure awaits you in Lubbock in 2022. Plan your visit today at visitlubbock.org.
