More than passing through
We invite you to visit the Crossroads of Texas! Evant is located at the junction of Highways 281 and 84, an hour from Waco, 1½ hours from Austin, and 2 hours from DFW. Once a thriving farming community, Evant had slowly dwindled to a pass-through town between Hamilton and Lampasas. But now, with the involvement of the entire community, Evant is becoming a full family destination.
Stop in and shop with a purpose – visit locally owned stores featuring art, woodwork, boutiques, antiques, home goods, baked goods, and more. Come to the 281 Trade Days the first Saturday of every month. Visit the Buena Vista Wildlife Safari and RV Park – drive through the safari during the day, then linger in one of the beautiful cabins or your own RV overnight. Attend the local rodeo; visit a winery; attend the Pearl Bluegrass Jam and Stage Show. Whatever you choose to do, we hope your trip to Evant will be a refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
