Lockhart’s Chisholm Trail Roundup is a western weekend 45 years in the making. The city’s largest annual festival attracts some 30,000 people each year on the second weekend of June for this cowboy celebration, which falls on June 8-10 this year. Visitors are encouraged to dust off their cowboy hats and put on their boots to get in the spirit for the events, which includes a full rodeo, a grand parade, gunfight reenactments, cowboy breakfasts, and live music from the Bellamy Brothers, Reckless Kelly, Nathan Colt Young, and Justin Trevino. And seeing as it’s set in the Barbecue Capital of Texas, the festivities wouldn’t be complete without a cook-off, June 2-3
