Vendor Registration for the 16th Annual Lonestar Rod & Kustom Round Up is NOW OPEN!
The Lonestar Rod & Kustom Round Up celebrates its 16th year making Austin, Texas the hot rod capital of the world April 7 & 8th, 2017. We hope you will join us again as a vendor for the show.
We have two great areas for vending at the Lonestar Round Up:
Outdoors - vendor spaces are $250 for a 15'x15' space.
These spaces are located right in the middle of the show - going down "vendor row" on paved roadways in a tree-lined area going down the center of the two main show parking lots, and are available on a first come, first served basis.
Indoors - vendor spaces are $350 for a 10'x10' space.
We offer vendors space in a large climate controlled banquet hall building, just between the show barn and the main outdoor stage. This area has amenities like air conditioning, restrooms, and the ability to securely lock up access to the building at the end of the day. We offer these indoor spaces on a first come, first served basis - limited space available.

Set-up info and schedule
Vendors need to arrive and load-in at the Travis County Expo Center (7311 Decker Lane) - you will be directed to the vendor area to check in with Round Up staff, find a space and unload and set up.
Thursday, April 6th:
Noon - 4pm - We offer limited early load-in time the day before the show begins from noon to 4pm. No earlier or later. Thursday load in is HIGHLY recommended to get everything set-up before the show begins the next day. Please DO NOT arrive early on Thursday before noon as the Round Up staff is very busy setting up staging for the show.
Friday, April 7th:
7am - 10am - Day of show load-in. By 10am we need all load-in vehicles/trucks to be moved to the parking area outside of the gates (load in vehicles cannot be inside the park during the show, or behind the indoor vending building). Gates will open to the general public, show cars will start to be let in to park, and registration begins.
11am - 6pm - Live music onstage
Overnight - we will have security patrolling the grounds all night, but you are responsible for securing your own valuables/merchandise. The indoor vendor space will be completely locked at the end of the day on Friday, and open again Saturday morning.
Saturday, April 8th:
10am - Gates will open again for show cars and general admission
11am - 6pm - Live music onstage
6pm - Break-down begins after the last band has finished.
Two admission wristbands are included with each booth space - one for yourself and one helper in the booth - if you need additional wristbands, they can be purchased during set-up time for $15 each. These wristbands will allow you to come and go from the show (if you need to return to your load in vehicle, etc.)
Vendor space is just that, space to vend in. No tables, chairs, pop-up tents, etc. will be supplied - you will need to bring in and load out any supplies you need for your booth. Anything you bring must fit inside the space that you have reserved.
No car registration is included in the vendor space fee, if you want to register a car, directions are at: lonestarroundup.com/register
A note to pinstripers - due to space and safety concerns - you cannot have cars come to you at a booth space to be striped. All show cars will enter the show and be parked, and cannot drive around during the show - you have to go to them if you are striping at the show.
Thanks for your support, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
