The Big Tex Youth Livestock Market Schedule has Been Revised

The Big Tex Youth Livestock market show has a revised schedule, following the cancellation of the 2020 State Fair of Texas caused by COVID-19. The Fair is still committed to offering youth livestock participation opportunities and wants to ensure a safe environment for their exhibitors and staff. Promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement is an essential element of the Fair’s nonprofit mission.

The revised 2020 livestock market show schedule is spread out over ten days, from September 23 to October 2, in Fair Park. This schedule concludes with the annual Big Tex Youth Livestock Auction that will be held on October 2.

In addition to the market week shows, a partnership with Heart of Texas in Waco offers students a path to maintain eligibility for Big Tex Youth Livestock scholarships.

Additional information regarding the revised livestock show will be online by the end of July. The 2021 State Fair of Texas is scheduled to run September 24 through October 17 in historic Fair Park. We can all look forward to attending a traditional livestock show schedule then.

The State Fair of Texas has celebrated all things Texan by promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement since 1886. The nonprofit organization’s proceeds help preserve and improve Fair Park. They underwrite museums, community initiatives, and scholarship programs for Texas students pursuing higher education.
