Since July of 2005, when the Truth or Consequences Art Hop began, many downtown shops, galleries, and studios have been opening their doors to the public from 6-9pm each month.
Even as the landscape of downtown businesses has changed; through wind, rain, sleet, snow, and summer heat; and whether crowds have been expected to be large or small, the Art Hop has been a constant.
If you enjoy a bit of night life and are coming to Sierra County for the weekend, time your trip to coincide with the event and take in art (guaranteed), music (highly probable), performance (not unheard of), food (absolutely!), and other entertainment on the streets of Truth or Consequences and in its downtown businesses.
A list of T or C businesses is available on our Shopping page. Not all of them participate in the Hop, but it’s a starting place.
The best way to find out what’s going on is to attend – shows are sometimes planned last-minute, and sometimes events happen spontaneously.
But if you really like to know what’s up ahead of time, bits of information on shows and events can be found in a few spots…
- on the Art Hop Facebook page
- at SierraCountyEvents.com
- on flyers posted in windows and on bulletin boards around town
- on the websites of participating businesses
The Shopping / Art Hop district is roughly contained in the green area on the map below.
For some, soaking in Truth or Consequences’ Hot Springs and Art Hop go hand in hand. Commercial hot springs are located within the blue area.
