The 53rd Burnet County Rodeo is slated for this weekend, May 10-11. This is the third year for the rodeo to be held in May. Previous years the Burnet County Rodeo was held in June, but weather conditions seem to be more favorable in May; it tends to be cooler which is better for the livestock and the athletes.

Events will kick-off each night at 7 p.m. Adult tickets are $15 at the gate, $5 ages 6-9, 5 and under are free. You can expect to see riders participate in bareback bronc riding, bull riding, calf roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, and team roping.

In addition to the regular rodeo events kids will have an opportunity to get involved with a calf scramble, shoe scramble, and mutton bustin event which is always a crowd favorite.


It's Rodeo and Fair time Ya'll



As the rain takes a back seat this week and sunny skies are in the forecast, Burnet County residents are in for a real treat this weekend, June 10-11.

The Burnet County Fair is set for Friday and Saturday along with the Burnet County Rodeo.

Whether it is vegetables, crafts and metalwork’s that catches the spectators attention or the adrenaline rush of watching bucking bulls and saddle bronc riding, there is “something for everyone” this weekend.

The fair kicks off Thursday night with the first ever crowning of the Burnet County Fair Queen at 7 p.m. located at the Hill Country Foundation Building, 403 East Jackson, Burnet.

Next, the Fair opens the weekend festivities at 10 a.m. on Friday morning at the Burnet County Community Center, 401 East Jackson, Burnet.

Demonstrations, Photographs, 4H Style Show, Barbeque and a gun fight will all be in store for anyone wishing to attend the fair.
