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.

Jerry Fay Wilhelm Center for the Performing Arts (PAC)

Details
Jerry Fay Wilhelm directed Bastrop High School's U.I.L. One-Act-Play competition for 27 years, and under her direction, Bastrop High School won many awards at the district, area, regional and state levels. During that time, her passion and commitment to theater inspired countless students and young dramatists, many of whom went on to pursue stage careers on a professional level or follow in her footsteps and dedicate their lives to teaching. Bastrop County lost this treasured educator in 2007, but her memory will live on during the student productions performed in this beautiful facility.
