The newest fair in Texas is coming to the Brazos Valley. The Brazos Valley Fair & Expo is a brand new, mid-major fair committed to showcasing agriculture, education and youth to enhance our Texas culture. The first annual event will be held September 6-9, 2012 and include a carnival, rodeo, junior livestock show, open livestock show, family-friendly exhibits, music and entertainment.
As a mid-major or regional fair, the Brazos Valley Fair & Expo will include an area with a reach that encompasses the entire state of Texas and surrounding states. The Brazos County Expo Complex will serve as the home of the Brazos Valley Fair & Expo. This state-of-the-art facility has hosted many livestock shows, rodeos, and horse shows and is widely known in the industry as one of the best facilities of its kind.
The Brazos Valley Fair & Expo will host a ribbon cutting on September 21, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. at the Expo Complex. Immediately following the ribbon cutting, the Expo will host an open house reception, in collaboration with the Fair, to showcase the recent phase-two expansion. Volunteer and Sponsorship information on the first annual fair will be made public at the ribbon cutting.
The fair’s website will launch in late August, www.brazosvalleyfair.com,
