West Texas Fair & Rodeo

West Texas Fair & Rodeo September 6-15, 2018 hosted by the Taylor County Expo Center. http://taylorcountyexpocenter.com

Welcome to the West Texas Fair and Rodeo! A tradition that has been bringing families and friends together for over 115 years! Come out to the Taylor County Expo Center and you will be sure to find PRCA cowboys and cowgirls attempting to qualify for the PRCA National Finals Rodeo on some of the fastest, meanest stock Beutler & Sons has to offer! Hit the midway for rides that will leave you breathless, regardless of your age, as Carnival Americana brings in the most modern and up to date rides in the business. But what would a fair be without exhibits, food and music? Well, we have that and more! Stroll through the livestock exhibits and see some of the finest animals from around the great state of Texas. Take a walk through the Modern Living Hall and view the creativity of local people and the talents they bring to the fair. There will be music and other entertainment daily. It's all here, we invite you, your family and friends to come join us, the memories will last a lifetime. On behalf of the Expo Center of Taylor County, the volunteers and staff, I want to thank you for letting us be a part of this great tradition.

Thank you Veterans! Today we honor all those who have served our country.

We're all smiles as we look through the photos from the West Texas Fair & Rodeo!

Please remember that we crop/edit/add backdrop (or people!) to all backdrop photos after they are purchased. We know some of the calves didn't want to cooperate near the banner. When purchasing, pick the photo where the animal looks best and we will fix the edges of the photo for you 😃

Thank you, again, to everyone that made this a successful West Texas Fair!
