Galveston County Fair & Rodeo Returns to Jack Brooks Park April 4th - 12th
Posted In: Events & Attractions | Hitchcock News Posted by Pam Moore on 04/02/2014


Time again for family fun at the 76th Annual Galveston County Fair! If you are not familiar with the history of the Galveston County Fair & Rodeo, this information is found on their website: “The fair began in 1938 and was held at facilities in Runge Park located in Arcadia, Texas.  In the early 1980s, the County Fair had reached its limits of growth at Runge Park and plans began for a move to Jack Brooks Park located in Hitchcock, Texas. The move to Jack Brooks Park was completed in time for the 1984 Fair, and this is where the fairgrounds are currently located. The youth and the animal projects they exhibited are the foundation the Fair was built upon. This tradition continues today.

Many families look forward to the annual Fair & Rodeo. Volunteer committees work for several months planning different events and activities for everyone to enjoy during the fair as well as events that are held at other times throughout the year. The GCF&R also hosts "special" days for the community -Special Kids' Day, Schools' Day, and Senior Citizens' Day.  And we are very proud to award several thousand dollars in Scholarships each year to deserving high school seniors from Galveston County. We would like to thank all of the sponsors, buyers, volunteers and staff members who make it all possible.”

The Fair & Rodeo will be held from April 4-12, at the Jack Brooks Park, located at Hwy 6 in Hitchcock. 77563. Ticket Prices, admissions and park & ride information can be found on the fairs webpage. The daily calendar of events can also be found on the website. Besides all the family fun activities, musical entertainment will be available by Cody Johnson, Kevin Fowler, the Spazmatics, Wayne Toups, and many others. You can also find information about the Rodeo events and Cook-offs on the Events Page of the website.
