A TEXAS CULTURAL DISTRICT
Downtown Bryan is rich with atmosphere, commerce and personal stories. From antique shops and family-owned restaurants, to art galleries and boutiques, this recognized Texas Cultural District is where history meets community.
Celebrating Bryan's 150th Anniversary
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the City of Bryan’s official incorporation on Nov. 29, 1871. That’s 150 years of history to celebrate, and we are taking the opportunity to tell the stories of how Bryan has grown – through the people, places and things that shaped the community.
Downtown Bryan's signature event, First Friday, is like a giant block party with a few thousand of your closest friends. Street musicians, interactive displays, free concerts and of course, the welcoming smiles of downtown merchants who stay open late will make you feel like you're right at home.
