Featured Articles Huntsville Texas News News

The Walker County Fair and Rodeo is back for its 45th year, and it promises to be bigger and better than ever. From March 31st to April 8th, 2023, the fairgrounds in Huntsville will be filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of all things country and western.

This annual event is a tribute to the rich heritage of Texas and features livestock shows and auctions, a chili cook-off, carnival rides and games, a petting zoo, live music, and Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association rodeo competitions. It’s an investment in youth through community involvement.

The livestock shows are always a highlight of the fair. Young people from all over the county come to show off their prized animals in hopes of winning a ribbon or even a cash prize. The auctions that follow give these young people the opportunity to sell their animals and earn money for their hard work.

The chili cook-off is another popular event at the fair. Local cooks compete to see who can make the best chili in town. The competition is fierce, but the real winners are the fairgoers who get to sample all of the delicious entries.

The carnival rides and games are always a hit with kids of all ages. And don’t forget about the petting zoo! Kids can get up close and personal with all kinds of farm animals.

The live music at the fair is always top-notch. Local bands take to the stage to entertain fairgoers with their favorite country and western tunes. And when the sun goes down, the rodeo begins. Professional cowboys and cowgirls compete in events like bull riding, barrel racing, and team roping.

Don’t miss your chance to experience the best of Texas at the Walker County Fair and Rodeo. Mark your calendars for March 31st to April 8th, 2023, and come join the fun!
