Things to Do in Roundtop Area
Hey! We bring you the best of the Roundtopolis. Every week on Mondays, except for the last two weeks of the year...or if we run out of time. Check out our online calendar for late-breaking funness. (Okay, that's a made up word.)

We publish the quarterly Round Top Register and a weekly newsletter (50 issues) that offers ideas of things to do and see, places to go, stay and eat in the greater Roundtopolis .

In 2017, Round Top Texas: Life & Style will join our family of publications. The magazine, which will be issued twice in 2017, will offer urban readers a handy guide to plan a Round Top trip, either during antiques season or outside the two big shows.

Subscribe to our newsletter and be the first to receive a free Round Top Antiques Show Map!
