The Bastrop Homecoming and Rodeo originated in in 1947 as a way of welcoming back 90,000 soldiers who had been based at Camp Swift during WWII. Today we welcome locals and visitors alike to this unique, hometown event where you'll find live music, a rodeo, various tournaments, dances, class reunions, and a Grand Parade. This four night celebration is full of "feel good vibes" and memories for the making.

BIRDING IN BASTROP

Have you heard? Bird is officially the word in Bastrop, TX! Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Audubon Texas has designated the City of Bastrop as a Bird City Texas certified community through 2022. Did you know? we're home to 277 different species of birds and located along the prolific route that millions of birds take on their way to South America and back during their biannual migration? These are just a few of the reasons Bastrop is a prime location for birdwatchers in the Lone Star State.
