The 2014 theme of the 2014 North Texas Fair and Rodeo, to be held from August 15 to 23 in Denton, is “It’s What Cowboys Do,” according to Executive Director Glenn Carlton. “This theme reflects the Texas cowboy culture,” says Carlton. “We are considered by many as a cowboy reunion, and many attend so see old friends once a year at the fair. You don’t have to be a cowboy to attend, but many are.”
The event typically attracts 150,000 attendees each year and is one of the largest Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association gatherings in the Southwest. People will enjoy nightly rodeos, a world-class midway, livestock exhibits, shopping, scores of food vendors, fun zones for kids and concerts by nationally known talent. Concerts include performances by The Randy Rogers Band, Kevin Fowler, Jamie Richards, Uncle Lucuis, Cody Johnson, the Josh Abbott Band, Aaron Watson and many more. Hispanic Heritage Day, August 17, will feature Banda Yurirense in concert.
