Wild & Free on 83 is a collaboration of several communities located along Highway 83, also known as the Texas Veterans Memorial Highway.

The towns of Childress, Wellington, Shamrock, Wheeler and Canadian have each scheduled four days full of fun from Thursday, August 1st through Sunday, August 4th.

The multi-day, family-friendly event will include live music, art exhibits, scavenger hunts, helicopter tours, clay shoots, cookouts, block parties, golf tournaments, star watching, wine tasting and much more! 

Area residents are invited to discover the rich heritage of these communities by visiting points of interest in each town while enjoying events scheduled throughout the day.

“It’s an easy drive over for most people in the Panhandle,” says organizer Kristen Moudy with the Wheeler Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Center. “We hope our friends from neighboring towns will come experience what we have to offer along highway 83 and learn not only about our rich history but experience what makes up the fabric of our towns.”

Organizers hope to expand Wild & Free on 83 each year to include more stops along Highway 83.
