Lonestar Rod and Kustom Round Up

April 17 - April 18

When it’s Round Up time in Austin, Texas – hot rods and custom cars gather here from all over the country to create something special.

The Lonestar Rod and Kustom Round Up is a huge outdoor car show and live music festival in Austin, Texas with tons of vintage hot rods and custom cars driven here from all over the country, and bringing visitors from all over the world.

They have some amazing bands onstage playing for you while you check out all the incredible rides. Find first-rate artwork created by some some seriously talented artists and pinstripers. Enjoy some one-of-a-kind shopping and services with our lineup of unique vendors.

In the rodeo barn – they put together a big swap meet where you might find that perfect part, vintage collectibles or a project you’ve been looking for, or even a new (old) car to drive home. And there are daily mini-bike races tearing it up on the dirt oval.

Enjoy some great food from local vendors, and share a few cold drinks with your friends and family as you experience the best weekend all year.

The Lonestar Round Up goes on rain or shine.


Since its beginning in 2002, the Lonestar Round Up has grown from a humble one-day outdoor car show hosted at an old football stadium to a sprawling weekend-long celebration of hot rods and custom cars for the people who build them, drive them, and just can’t get enough of the music, art, history and creativity inspired by and created around them.

Featuring the very best in live music, a giant swap meet, vendors, and tons of traditional hot rods and custom cars from across the country take over the spacious grounds of the Travis County Expo Center on Friday and Saturday, not to mention the BBQs, open house parties, and cruise nights spread out all around Austin that the Round Up has become famous for.

Its a unique, home-grown and Texas-sized experience that we hope you will join us for and share with your friends and family. Thank you for your support of the Lonestar Round Up, and we look forward to seeing you soon!


Come and check out all the hot rods and custom cars from all over the country on display up close!  We’ve brought together tons of cool vintage rides, unique shopping with artists and vendors, great food and drinks, and all of it with some of the best live music anywhere onstage all weekend.  Its all here for you out at the Lonestar Round Up to enjoy with your family and friends.
