The Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo has been canceled due to public health concerns surrounding COVID-19.

Organizers say the decision was made after seeking guidance from county officials and taking direction from the board of directors.

If the situation improves to the point where it's safe to hold mass gatherings, the Brazos Valley Fair & Rode will return October 15-17 and 22-24, 2021.

“The impact of the fair’s cancellation will be felt far beyond the loss of our annual celebration,” said Dr. Jim Mazurkiewicz, BVFR Board President. “We are heartbroken for the small businesses, competitors and exhibitors, community outreach groups and sponsors who rely on the income and exposure the Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo brings them.”

“We look forward to brighter, better days ahead when we can gather again to celebrate all that is exceptional about the Brazos Valley,” Mrs. Tizard-Meyer said. “Until then, stay safe, be well and support each other. We’ll miss you.”

Organizers say they will be moving forward with planning the 2020 Brazos Valley Fair & Rodeo Youth Livestock Show with more details to be released in the coming months. The show will award over $30,000 in awards and scholarships.
