Galveston County Fair & Rodeo
SERVING GALVESTON COUNTY TEXAS YOUTH SINCE 1938
Experience The Tradition
GCFR 2023 - April 14-22
Education Foundation Night
I was left with some big shoes to fill, but with the help of our team, sponsors and buyers the 84th Annual Galveston County Fair & Rodeo was a MAJOR SUCCESS. We felt very fortunate to have had a full-blown fair without any restrictions this year, it finally feels like we are getting back to normal. So again, without all of you, this would not have been possible…and for that I am truly grateful.
We are very excited for the youth of Galveston County! This year, we are proud to say that our 4-H and FFA youth exhibitors received over $1,100,000 from the sale of projects that sold in the Junior Auction, on Commitment, in the Junior Commercial Heifer Auction, from the Ag Mechanics Show, and the Youth Project Show. Thank you to all of our buyers who made this possible!
Work never slows down here at the Galveston County Fair. We will soon be awarding scholarships to our 2022 graduating seniors. Our Rodeo Committee has been busy with the Summer Series and steadily planning events for the fall. The Livestock Committee and other committees are busy preparing for the 2023 Fair. And we are looking forward to WinterFest which will be held December 2 & 3, 2022.
It takes everyone working together to make the fair a successful event for the 4-H & FFA kids and the community. THANK YOU!!! We look forward to seeing you soon!
