The 2020 Brown County Rodeo, scheduled for June 4-6, has been canceled because of the COVID-19 crisis, the Brown County Fair Association announced.


According to a press release from the association:


Every year the Brown County Fair Association looks forward to hosting the Brown County Rodeo which is a time honored tradition and one of the largest fundraisers for the Brown County Fair Association’s general fund. The Association has made the difficult decision to cancel the rodeo that was planned for June.


This was a tough call to make but the ability to raise funds, coordinate the volunteers, and logistically plan this large event has been hampered by the COVID-19 crisis. We feel the need to prioritize the health and safety of our volunteers and community at this time. We remain committed to the 2021 youth fair and the youth of Brown County.


We will need continued community support to contribute to the general fund through donations. This fund helps to maintain the fairgrounds and to host the youth fair. Working with the next generation of leaders, creators  and the future of agriculture remains our focus.


We know this is a major loss for our participants, royalty and community. We look forward to hosting the 2021 Youth Fair so our youth can learn, lead, and serve while they raise and create their projects.


Please contribute to the general fund through membership sales from our next group of Queen candidates, or a direct donation can be mailed to P.O. Box 1101, Brownwood, Texas 76804
