Things To Do At

The city of Bastrop, Texas is a unique blending of old and new. Nestled on the banks of the Colorado River, this historic town offers a selection of shops and restaurants. Be sure to visit our historic Downtown area.

The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals offer the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.

The three day event includes great food like homemade beef stew, beans and biscuits cooked on the campfire close to a chuck wagon, and demonstrations of cast iron cooking. Local downtown restaurants are all open among the five block street market area also featuring more than 100 street vendors.

Circuit Of The Americas is a multi-purpose facility that will host the most prestigious racing events in the world, including the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix?. It is the first purpose-built Grand Prix facility in the U.S.

Get lost in a 5-acre corn maze while enjoying live music by up-and-coming Texas Country artists. Moms and Dads can kick back with a brew overlooking the banks of the Colorado River while kids climb atop hay bale pyramids, play frontier games in a replica of the ol? Wilbarger fort, and explore the Lively, Stephen F. Austin?s lost sailing ship fabled to be taken by pirates, lost at sea, or perhaps even shipwrecked on the high banks of the Colorado River outside Bastrop.

Dine next to the Colorado River at Bastrop's very own brew pub and biergarten. Plus, enjoy a burger and beer while listening to some live music or watching the big game.
