2014 West Texas Fair & Rodeo

September 4-13, 2014
Welcome to this years’ 116th West Texas Fair and Rodeo. The theme this year is “A Salute to Our Heroes.” We wish to celebrate and honor those who have or currently serve and help others as a firefighter, police officer, DPS officer, EMT, and military.
At the West Texas Fair & Rodeo you're sure to find a plethora of delicious food, a carnival with a variety of rides for everyone to enjoy, two rounds of a Tractor Pull that are sure to excite the boys, a week of PRCA Rodeo, a barn full of some of the best livestock from across Texas, musicians, entertainment and much more!
