Family Fun at Gillespie County Fair

Four exciting days and nights of hometown family fun are waiting new residents of Fredericksburg TX real estate.  Each August, the Gillespie County Fair fortifies strong community roots that contribute to our stable property values of Fredericksburg homes.  The fair is the perfect place to bring family and friends for camaraderie and action, fresh air and sunshine.  

Convenient to all of Texas Hill Country real estate, the Gillespie County Fair is the oldest, continuously running county fair in Texas.  From its founding in 1881, the fair delighted residents of Hill Country homes every year except five war years.  People come here all the way from homes in Austin to Highland Lakes, San Antonio, and Kerrville.  The Gillespie County Fairgrounds are two miles south of Fredericksburg, between real estate in Fredericksburg and Kerrville on Highway 16.

Festivities kick off with the Gillespie County Fair Parade and the crowning of the Gillespie County Fair Queen.  There is a big carnival and midway, livestock, agricultural exhibits, arts and crafts, horse racing, dancing under the stars, and nationally acclaimed country performers.

A volunteer board of directors governs the nonprofit Gillespie County Fair & Festivals Association, Inc.  They donate over 15,000 hours per year to the success of the organizational goals.  With an emphasis on agriculture, the organization presents fairs and festivals to the community and develops programs for the youth of Gillespie County that encourage, instruct, and promote education.  They also sponsor community and family entertainment such as Flavors of Fredericksburg and the annual Scholarship Fest.  Donations to the Scholarship Fund are tax deductible.

Additional events held at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds include Live and Simulcast Pari-mutuel Quarter Horse, Thoroughbred and Greyhound Racing, which also takes place during the Gillespie County Fair.  

More events such as Texas Wines and Texas Winners, Gillespie County Youth Stock Show, Texas Presentations Antique Shows, Band Boosters Turkey Dinner, Country Peddler Shows, Texas Gun & Knife Show, Texas Woodcarvers Guild, Antique Tractor & Engine Show, and Lone Star Gourd Festival are held at the fairgrounds.  Facilities are also available for public and private functions such as wedding receptions, reunions, exhibits, and meetings.
