History

Our rich history of preserving western heritage began in 1938. Over the years, The Star of Texas Fair and Rodeo has grown from a Show featuring 16 animals into one of Austin’s premier events, featuring ProRodeo events, daily Concerts, Livestock Show and more. In addition, our Scholarship Program created in 1983 has impacted the lives of hundreds of Texas youth, donating millions of dollars to their education.
