Junction Car Show, Rodeo, and Dance
August 12 - 13, 2022
The top summer entertainment in Texas is found in Junction in mid-August of every year. With the Junction Rodeo and Dance and the Martin Memorial Open Car Show happening, this month heats up in more ways than one.
Junction Rodeo and Dance
There’s nothing more Texan than an old-fashioned rodeo. Unless you add a dance under the stars, of course. Both are all part of the fun at the Junction Rodeo and Dance, held every year in mid-August.
Along with a parade and the Martin Memorial Open Car Show, the rodeo and dance offer a full weekend of festival fun in Junction. Located at the western end of the Texas Hill Country at the convergence of two pristine rivers, this is the place to be in summer.
The heart and the soul of this annual event is the heart-pounding rodeo action. Events like bull riding make up the core of each night of the Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association rodeo organized by the Cadillac Rodeo Company.
Take it all in, then get ready to tap your toes and swing your hips at the nightly dance held at the pavilion on the Hill Country Fairgrounds.
As if all this wasn’t enough, don’t miss the vibrant parade that marches through downtown Junction on Saturday morning. Then head to the courthouse square to check out all the vintage and unique autos of the car show or take a dip in the nearby South Llano River to cool off from the summer heat.
Martin Memorial Open Car Show
If you’re an auto enthusiast, you won’t want to miss the annual Martin Memorial Open Car Show in Junction. Set around the Kimble County Courthouse, the car show brings all kinds of vehicles from across the country to this charming town set on the western edge of the Texas Hill Country. Held on the second weekend of August along with a rodeo, parade, and class reunions, the car show is the perfect reason for you to visit Junction.
The Martin Car Show is a showcase of many types of eye-catching rides, from vintage and customized cars to hot rods and unique autos.
Get to the courthouse square early so you can take your time and appreciate the one-of-a-kind character of each vehicle. Awards are handed out in the afternoon to the top cars of each class, adding a competitive edge to the car show that brings out some of the best autos around.
When you’re not checking out the car show, head a few blocks west to dive into the cool waters of the South Llano River. For some outdoor adventure, hike the trails or go paddling at the South Llano River State Park, located just a short drive south.
Become a part of these local traditions as you admire the skills of professional cowboys at the annual Junction Rodeo and Dance and see the exceptional lineup of unique and vintage cars on show at the Martin Memorial Open Car Show every August. A journey to Junction’s neck of the woods is well worth the trip.
