The 36th Annual Rockdale Fair & Rodeo

The 36th Annual Rockdale Fair & Rodeo will be held October 20- 22, 2011, hosted by the Rockdale Fair Association. The goal of the Rockdale Fair Association is to support the youth and communities of Milam County. They are a 100% volunteer organization and pride themselves on what they contribute to the community.

The Rockdale Fair Association is again making several improvements to some of the facilities at Fair Park prior to the 2011 Rockdale Fair. Plans have been approved by the City of Rockdale and construction is underway on additional lighting, as well as covering the small animal wash racks. The City owns Fair Park but the RFA has been responsible for building many of the structures at Fair Park.

In 2010, an additional livestock barn was constructed. It is a multi-purpose building located next to the existing show barn. The number of entries in the Livestock Show the last few years warranted additional pens and space.

Three-Day Passes are available if purchased through Thursday, October 20. Adult passes are $20; children ages 8 to 12 can buy passes for $10 each. People over the age of 55 can also buy three day passes for $10. Children 7 and under are FREE.

If not buying a pass in advance, tickets can be purchased daily at the gate. Adult tickets are $15; Children 8-12 are $10; Senior Citizens ( 55+) are $ 10 and Children under 7 are free.

This year’s entertainment will include D.J. Scott Leonard on Thursday; Craig Campbell with Special Guest Shawn Jennings and Southern Roots Band will perform on Friday.

John Conlee and Kyle Park with Special Guest Nick Lawrence Band will be featured Saturday night.
