MISSION

The MISSION of the Montgomery County Fair Association is to Champion the Youth of Montgomery County!

Since 1957 our community has come together in support of the youth of this great county through the Montgomery County Fair and Rodeo. During that time, our Fair, Rodeo and BBQ Cook-Off have grown tremendously.

SPECIAL EVENTS

Live Concerts, Magic Shows, Animal Races, Kids’ Days, Sunshine Day and Senior Citizen Day and Non-Livestock Shows are just a few of the special¬† events you can find at the Montgomery County Fair & Rodeo.¬†

ATTENDANCE

More than 80,000 patrons are expected every year with nearly 3,000 exhibitors ranging from Non-Livestock to Livestock exhibits, contests and shows.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Our Scholarship program began with the Scholarship Trail Ride. Since the program began in 1993, over $2 million has been awarded to Montgomery County youth! In addition, portions of proceeds from the Auctions also contribute. 

AUCTIONS

Over the past twenty nine years, just the Livestock Auction alone has earned over $20,000,000.00, paid back to the youth of Montgomery County!

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce Agricultural Division began holding what became known as “Field Days,” literally, a day spent in someone’s field. Throughout the years, the location was moved to various local ranches and farms where different activities were added. During the early 1960’s, the annual Field Day events began to vaguely resemble the Montgomery County Fair, as it is known today.
By 1965, when the Candy Cane Park Pavilion was three years old, the show and auction had completely outgrown the new quarters. The auction had to be held at the Cow Palace auction barn east of Conroe. Two years later, even the area near the Cow Palace auction barn had become too small for the still expanding Junior Livestock Show.
In 1968, the Montgomery County Fairgrounds would become the new site for the Junior Livestock Show. The Livestock Show had become a “baby giant” of the Chamber of Commerce by 1977, and became incorporated in 1979.

The Livestock Show had become a “baby giant” of the Chamber of Commerce by 1977. 1978 was an organizational year and the Montgomery County Fair became incorporated in 1979. It has been going strong ever since, adding all the activities and fun that make a great County Fair! In 1985 the Fair Offices were moved to the Fairgrounds and remain there today. The Fair Association has added an Exhibit Building and two Livestock Barns over the years. The “Lone Star Expo Center” was built and ready for use for the 2001 Fair. The Rodeo was the first major event held in the arena.
