Bastrop Music Friendly Community Designation
On August 13, 2020, Bastrop was certified by the Texas Music Office as a Music Friendly Community. Bastrop is the fifteenth Music Friendly Community in the state of Texas. In Texas, the music industry is responsible for 97,000 permanent jobs and 9.6 billion dollars of economic activity annually. Our Music Friendly Community designation will help us promote our diverse music industry and help it grow by fostering economic development in Bastrop.
