Rockdale was home to noted novelist George Sessions Perry. For horse-racing enthusiasts, Valhalla Farms--one of three sanctioned training tracks in Texas--is just north of the city.

Events include the Tejas Art and Book Festival, the Milam County Festival and Barbecue in March, and the Rockdale Fair on the third full weekend in October.
