Of course we still raise lots of cowboys & cowgirls, so we’ve got exciting, fun rodeo events and county fair that are sure to please any crowd. Our main attraction is the Austin County Fair & Rodeo held in early October.¬†Stock show, petting zoo, PRCA Rodeo, midway carnival, arts & crafts, and of course great food and Live Entertainment every day! The¬†Fair Parade on the second Thursday in October at 10am is considered the official kick-off of the Fair and gathers many spectators as it winds around the square in Bellville and down Highway 159 to the Fairgrounds.
