The county fair tradition is woven into the fabric of nearly every American community. It presents opportunities for young people to foster life skills such as communication, leadership, goal setting, work ethic, responsibility and sportsmanship. Community engagement and youth education in agriculture are the focuses of the Williamson County Fair and Rodeo. In future years, the development of a scholarship program will provide deserving Williamson County students with scholarships to colleges and universities.

The How!

In December, the Williamson County Commissioners Court approved an agreement with the Williamson County Fair Association relating to funding the county’s first fair and rodeo in 2020. The agreement states that Williamson County will fund $100,000 to be used as seed money for the Williamson County Fair Association. The association will reimburse the county within four years, or the Commissioners Court has the ability to forgive all or a portion of that amount.

The What!

The mission of the Williamson County Fair and Rodeo is to provide a fun, family event that educates the public, promotes agriculture, and brings communities together to celebrate the traditions of Williamson County.
