Billy the Kid Day Open Car Show

First Saturday in April
One of the favorite events of the year in Hico. Typically over 100 cars show up for this popular, annual event. A wide variety of street vendors, DJ music and a lively awards ceremony make this an exciting family event.

Texas Steak Cookoff

3rd Saturday in May
Backyard chefs from all over the Southwest came to Hico, Texas to see who cooks The Best Steak in Texas. This event brought in 108 teams all trying to win the $3,500 first place and the title "Best Steak in Texas". The event was a great success and congratulations to all the winners.

Mark your calendars now for this year's event! The Annual Texas Steak Cookoff, hosted by the Hico's Original Steak Cookoff Committee, will be in May every year in historic downtown Hico, Texas. We look forward in seeing our old friends and the many new cookers that want to claim the title of "The Best Steak in Texas". If you are not a backyard chef, come on down anyway to enjoy some time in our 1896 Saloon.
