Fredericksburg – Gillespie County Fair

Gillespie County Fair – Hither and Yonder

For some classic, old-fashioned fun this weekend, two-step your way to the 129th annual Gillespie County Fair! The Gillespie County Fair is the oldest, continuously run county fair in Texas.  Kick off the weekend on Friday, August 25th at 10am with a parade through Fredericksburg’s Main Street, then head to the fairgrounds for classic carnival rides. All weekend, watch baking and quilting contests, browse agricultural and art exhibits or boogie the night away at the nightly dances.  The fair features Texas bands including Asleep at the Wheel, Casey Donahew and Billy Mata. Tickets are available online or at the door.
