Matagorda County Fair & Livestock Association


The Matagorda County fair was first organized in 1944 as an outgrowth of the Bay City FFA Livestock Show. About the same time Jackson Electric cooperative was bringing electric power to the farms and ranches. The show was expanded in 1946 to include the 4-H and FFA members from the county. The association was charted and incorporated in 1952 by the State of Texas and the first girl (Carrine Collins) showed a steer. Signing the original charter were T. J. Poole Jr., L.M. Slone, Roland Rugeley, E. L. McDonald and F. G. Cobb.

Today we have something for everyone, all participates and visitors to the Matagorda County Fair will have a meaningful Agricultural learning experience. The entertainment format will have lifelong memories for the young and the young at heart. The Fair runs for three weekends leading up to the fourth and final week filled with Livestock Shows and the PRCA Rodeo. We have many different events. There is something for everyone. Fair, carnival, Petting Zoo, stock shows, children’s entertainment, Talent Show & Public Speaking contest, rodeo, BBQ Cook-off, Ranch Rodeo, Team Penning, Wild Cow Saddling, Livestock Judging, Pageantry, Academic Rodeo, Agriculture Mechanics Show, Arts & Crafts, Senior Citizen Day, Halter Heifer & Texas Longhorn Show, Bucket Calf Show, Kids Coloring Contest, Concert, Youth Rodeo Clown Contest, along with great fair food and vendors, and a PRCA Rodeo.
