Fair Time! October 7 - 10, 2021

The Guadalupe County Fair & Rodeo is for kids of all ages. Whether you are a little tyke or a big "grown-up" the county fair has something for you. The little ones will enjoy the fair parade, the carnival for pint size as well as watching the broncing bucks.

Not sure where to start, "Let's get on over to the Kid's Corral", from there the decisions will ease.
