The Williamson County Fair Association announced July 28 the rescheduling of the inaugural Williamson County Fair and Rodeo.

Previously scheduled for Oct. 22-24, 2020, the fair and rodeo will debut Oct. 21-23, 2021, according to a news release.


“The Williamson County Fair and Rodeo is an event designed to bring together the entire community to celebrate our agricultural heritage,” said Scott Heselmeyer, president of the Williamson County Fair Association, in the release. “As much as we want to make that happen this fall, the board of directors has determined that the most responsible course of action for the community, our volunteers and our sponsors is to reschedule the fair for October 2021. For now, we want to focus on promoting the health and well being of everyone in our community. Next year, we will look forward to putting on a first-class event that all of Williamson County can enjoy together.”

The association will continue efforts this fall toward programs that benefit youth in Williamson County, the release said. This will include continued planning of a youth livestock show and moving forward with a scholarship program.
