Sherman TX Visitors Guide

Downtown Sherman is thriving with a diverse mix of boutiques, eateries, art galleries, museums, performance venues, and more. This eclectic neighborhood still has room to grow with new businesses opening at every corner. No matter what you are looking for, there is always something unique to discover, from local retailers (such as The Foxy Bird, Interior Home Store, and A Touch of Class Antique Mall) to original cuisine and ambience at Willie Jim’s Pie Co, Blue Door Café, and Fulbelli’s Restaurant. We also have boutiques like our wonderful Pop Pop Popcorn, Pickles and Pottery, and many more!

Downtown Sherman is also home to the Hot Summer Nights free concert series every Thursday night during June and July. This signature Sherman event started in 1995 with the simple thought of bringing residents together as a community through a shared love of music. Today thousands of locals and visitors gather around the gazebo stage on the municipal lawn downtown to relax and enjoy live music. Don’t forget to bring your own chair or blanket, and stock up your cooler!

Autumn and Arts Fest is Sherman’s annual fall festival, complete with food and crafts vendors, live music, karate and dance demonstrations, an art show and Art Walk and much more. Autumn Fest will be hosted on the Municipal Grounds and Mulberry Street this year and in the future. After the festival, stay over to explore downtown Sherman and our amazing Sherman Town Center Retailers, such as Old Navy, Best Buy, Hobby Lobby, and Harley Davidson Store.
