Texas Fall Outdoor Expo is the only Overland/Expedition centric event in Texas. Each year this event has grown in terms of attendance, vendors, and exposure and while there are bigger events out there, few can rival the combination of amazing vendors, beautiful location, and a grass roots feel that is inclusive to all walks of life.
We offer hands on classes, an intimate feel to our trade show that lets you get up and close with each vendor, an experience geared towards the entire family, and a sense of community where vendors, presenters, and attendees intermingle with each other to create a sense of true community.
We are proud to once again call Oxford Ranch Campgrounds our home for the Fall Outdoor Expo. Oxford Ranch offers a glimpse of the beauty that defines the Hill Country of Central Texas. There is plenty of room to spread out if you want some privacy as well as areas to set up in groups. Enchanted Rock State Park is nearby as well as the quaint town of Llano which offers restaurants and lodging if needed. For those who want something a little more refined, Austin and San Antonio are less than two hours away.
With so many options out there, the question becomes, why #cometotexas? If you are from Texas then you know that Texas is a place unlike no other with beautiful vistas and a people who's friendliness, spirit, and hospitality rivals no others. If you are coming from outside of Texas, then I say, come to Texas and find out what you have been missing. Come spend time with a like-minded group of folks without spending a fortune to do it. Learn from the professionals, talk to the vendors, participate in the classes, meet new people; but most of all Come To Texas and be part of something special. #LiveLifeOutside
