Round Rock Arts is pleased to present – in partnership with the Tinplate Trackers of Austin, Texas – the Annual Holiday Model Train Show. Free admission gains you access to view dynamic train display replete with a Harry Potter scene, a 1950s city with a trolley weaving through its downtown that is filled with vintage cars, a farm, amusement park, mountain range where Boy Scouts are on an outing, an old train depot, and even a water tower, just like Round Rock!
Last year, over 8,000 people came for this annual holiday event and art exhibit. This year’s art exhibit, featuring local and area artist, is called “A Child’s World,” and contains themes of playing, imagination, childhood memories, and more. Pairing the exhibit with the trains means we present a joyful and inspiring environment that is entertaining for children of all ages.
These trains aren’t just beautiful to watch in motion, but for a donation to the Tinplate Trackers, you can be a “junior engineer” and operate the train controls, many of which have different speeds and audio components (bells, engineer’s commands, etc). Additionally, raffle tickets are available for purchase to enter to win a Thomas the Train set, a perfect starter set for your children.
To add an interactive component for children and families, we are also offering activity booklets containing our ever popular scavenger hunt. Last year, children and their parents were delighted, and sometimes stumped, by our clues. For example: last year, 14 minions were hidden in the train display. Can you find them all? Items in the hunt can be found throughout our gallery.
Amazingly, this event for thousands of visitors is produced by volunteer power! We are thankful to our amazing volunteers and other supporters of the arts in Round Rock.
Admission is free, and donations will be accepted.
