Autumn in Round Rock is one of our favorite times of the year! The weather is perfect, and our city has plenty of events. A must-see event is Beaujolais Nights in November! Round Rock was named the “center of the universe on Beaujolais day” by Georges Dubeouf. This highly anticipated soiree invites guests to enjoy jazz and crack open the first bottle of wine from this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau! We also have an Annual Holiday Bazaar with various vendors with unique handcrafted items and creative merchandise.
