HEMPSTEAD, Texas – The Waller County Fair and Rodeo in Hempstead, Texas, is taking its respected rodeo to the professional ranks. This year’s event, scheduled for Friday, Sept. 30-Saturday, Oct. 1, is our inaugural year in the PRCA, and we’re coming into the highest level of the sport with a bang.
Better yet, we’re giving back to the contestants: 1) Buckles made by Montana Silversmiths will be presented to event champions; 2) The fair’s theme is “Riding for the Ribbon,” and all cowboys who take part in our Tough Enough to Wear Pink celebration on Saturday night will be eligible for a free gas card, given to the contestant with the best time or score on that night; 3) we are putting in $3,000 in added money for each event, one of the biggest purses in our area. Our stock contractor is Carr Pro Rodeo.
We’re putting on an event for cowboys, and we want this to be the best rodeo ever in Waller County, maybe in all of southeast Texas.
