The Texas Fandango vintage motorcycle event has rapidly become the most significant public festival in the Southwest for showcasing vintage and classic motorcycles.
The 2022 event drew more than 4,500 attendees from 16 states, Canada, and Mexico. Additionally, the event has brought a new use to the 160 years-old Gillespie County Fairgrounds. The organizers of the annual springtime event also donate a portion of the ticket sales to local charities, further bridging locals and visitors to support the benefits of event tourism.
With a nod to 1970s Austin counterculture artist Jim Franklin, the 2022 poster is an homage to the iconic Texas armadillo. The poster features a forced visual connection depicting the Texas mascot’s fierce independence and the spirit of motorcycle dirt track racing.
