Events in Brady

Given that the city is the geographic center of Texas, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many of the annual events in Brady involve some beloved Lone Star traditions: firearms, barbecue, and country music. One of the highlights of the year is the goat barbecue cook-off, which draws contestants and hungry spectators from all over the country. The folks around here also love live music, and several events - from the country music festival in the spring to the New Year’s Eve bash - feature live performances by established country and Western acts. Check out our list to see when you should plan your next trip to Brady.
