The Bayou Round Up

The Kontinentals car club have been hosting the Lonestar Round Up since 2002 in Austin, Texas which attracts a huge number of vintage cars driving in from all over the country. Everyone has such a good time, we decided to throw another party with our Louisiana friends in the fall.

The Bayou Round Up has established itself as a fantastic new annual tradition for locals and visitors alike to come together and enjoy this special vintage car show and live music fest. 

Lafayette is the perfect spot for the show, from the friendly hospitality of the people here, to all the natural scenery, incredible music, delicious food and unique culture of Louisiana - combine that with a great big gathering of vintage hot rods, custom cars, artists & vendors and its the ideal event to enjoy with all your friends and family - we hope you will join us!

An impressive list of talented musicians have performed for the show including Jimmie Vaughan & the Tilt-A-Whirl Band with Lou Ann Barton, Barbara Lynn, Archie Bell, Tommy McLain, Lil Buck Sinegal, Pat Breaux, CC Adcock, Mystic Knights of the Sea (with Charlie Sexton, Denny Freeman, Mike Buck, Speedy Sparks and John X Reed), The Blasters, Bonsoir Catin, Stooges Brass Band, Wifee & The Huzz Band, Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Vicky Tafoya & The Big Beat, Zydeco Radio, Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble, King James & The Special Men, K.C. Jones, Michot’s Melody Makers, The Iguanas and Keith Frank and the Soileau Zydeco Band.
