History of The Event

The name for Bastrop’s home-town celebration results from its beginnings. During World War II, business boomed in Bastrop as 90,000 military men were based at Camp Swift a few miles north of town. When the war ended and camp essentially closed, business lessened. As an attempt to give the city a boost, civic and business leaders created the first Homecoming Jubilee for area residents and to entice former residents, who spent time there during the war, to “come home” for the festivities.

Past celebrations took place in various months, May-August, and some included such things as fishing class boat races from Montopolis Bridge in Austin to the boat docks at Fisherman’s Park, Beauty Pageants, arts and crafts shows, kiddie parades, pet parades, canoe races and dances at the American Legion Hall. This annual tradition has provided an enjoyable weekend for the citizens of Bastrop and the surrounding area while maintaining a positive impact on the community.
