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 Texas Wine, Hops & Shops Wine & Beer Festival on Saturday, April 22! Over 50 vendors, wineries and breweries from across the state will gather at McPherson Cellars to toast to Texas wine and craft beer. Patrons will experience a lineup of regional vendors, local food trucks and Lubbock-based musical talent. 

The best way to see downtown is through the newcomers helping revitalize the area. At Dirk’s, Chef Cameron West showcases a simple menu consisting of crispy fried chicken and tasty sides to complement the local art of his late grandfather, Dirk West.  

You Will be Found At The Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences April 4-9 as the TONY Award-winning production, Dear Evan Hansen, will take to the Helen DeVitt Jones main theater stage. Follow Evan Hansen, a high school senior with social anxiety, who invents an important role for himself from a tragedy he did not expect. An unforgettable adventure awaits you in Lubbock in 2023.
