Over the past 150 years, lots of things have changed in the Original First Monday Park; but, the genuine, down-home human relationship between vendors and shoppers is the reason people keeping coming back. This is a place where you can slow down, visit and ask questions, talk to collectors and antique dealers, and meet the artists and craftsmen who create one-of-a kind items.

The world’s largest outdoor trade days takes place Thursday through Sunday before the first Monday of every month in Canton, Texas. Every month, thousands of vendors from across the country turn this friendly East Texas community into a shopper’s paradise where you can find the rare antiques and collectibles, furniture, fine home decor, arts and crafts, clothing, jewelry, tools, produce, and much more. Make plans now to come to Canton and enjoy the First Monday shopping experience.
Spend some time exploring our web site before your next visit. See our tips for making your experience more enjoyable, and find out how to become a vendor at the world’s largest outdoor market.

Since its beginning in 1938, the Gladewater Round-Up Rodeo has grown to be one of the premier rodeos in the country. At the 2008 PRCA convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Gladewater Round-Up Rodeo was selected as one of the top 5 medium outdoor rodeos in the nation. Also in April of 2008 The Gladewater Round Up Rodeo Committee was inducted into the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame. This is a great achievement, and I would like to congratulate all of the dedicated volunteers that make up our committee.
Our 74th rodeo will be held in our eight year old state of the art rodeo facility. This much improved facility is an example of the pride and commitment that is shown by our volunteers.
The directors of the Round-Up Association strive to provide rodeo fans with the finest contract personnel that professional rodeo has to offer. This year will be no exception, with 10-time PRCA announcer of the year, Randy Corley back for his 21st year. Besides his duties as stock contractor, 8-time world champion bull rider Don Gay will again be providing his colorful commentary on horseback. Keith Isley, 2009 Clown of the year, 2009 Coors Man in the Can, and 2009 Comedy Act of the Year will be here this year as clown/barrel man with his many funny acts along with bull fighter Cory Wall. For his second appearance in Gladewater, we are honored to have Clay Collins as a bullfighter that has worked the NFR the last three years.
Come and enjoy the best professional rodeo has to offer at the original East Texas rodeo, the Gladewater Round-Up Rodeo. (courtesy

Quilt Paintings by Sedrick Huckaby

The Tyler Museum of Art is proud to present a selection of oil paintings by Sedrick Huckaby, a Texas artist who uses thick, impasto paint to create his shape-shifting quilt murals, evocative of tradition, family and his own grandmother, “Big Momma.” Huckaby was born and raised in Fort Worth, and earned his BFA at Boston University and MFA at Yale University’s School of Art.
After graduating, Huckaby studied art in western Europe for two years before returning to Fort Worth. Today, he lives next door to his childhood home (where his parents still live) with his wife and fellow artist Carita Letitia Huckaby. Beyond formal study, it is family and faith that guides Huckaby’s artistic vision, imparting a universal and yet extremely personal tone expressed in many portraits of his family members, especially his grandmother who recently passed away.
A Love Supreme is one of the artist’s largest works, totaling 80 feet in length. Heavy, dense paint expresses the fold, texture and weight of his grandmother’s quilts. Divided into four sections that are categorized by season (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer), A Love Supreme is a tour de force in painterly sophistication but also approachable to any viewer. In addition to A Love Supreme, this exhibition consisting of all quilt paintings, showcases the artist’s latest accomplishments.
This exhibition was organized by the Tyler Museum of Art.
Signature Sponsor - Jeanne & Tom Campbell
Supporting Sponsors - Maurine G. Muntz, Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden, and Agnes & Frank Ward
