2020 Fort Bend County Fair Cancelled

Rodeo action, live music and BBQ cook-off fun will not be part of the 2020 Fort Bend County Fair experience. Due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fort Bend County Fair Board of Directors announced the cancelation of the 2020 Fort Bend County Fair and Rodeo; this is the first cancellation of the entire Fair since World War II.

Currently, the board and staff are working with community partners to have a livestock show and auction, and 14 young ladies will continue their journey to be crowned 2020 Fort Bend County Fair Queen.

Details are being finalized, and an altered schedule will be released soon.  As of August, 339 livestock exhibitors intend to show during the fair’s altered run. Steers, Pen of Two Commercial Heifers, Halter Heifers, Goats, Lambs, Swine, Turkeys, Pen of Broilers, Roasters, Bucket Calf, Scramble Heifer and Rabbits are expected to be shown.

“It is our intent that grand champions will be named, scholarships will be awarded and a fair queen will be crowned,” said Fair President Sean Gutierrez.  For the latest information, visit fortbendcountyfair.com.
