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.
