Goliad County Fair

Please note that we have authority from the county judge to allow the livestock show portion to resume. We have tried everything as an executive board to rearrange our show to make it possible. See below for new schedule and please note that we need to observe time constraints between each show to make it run efficiently. Exhibitors and parents will only be allowed in the barn during their sift and show time. No spectators will be allowed.  Please note all livestock will need to be loaded out of the barn immediately following your show, either to the floor or previously arranged butcher trailer. If you have a weakened immune system or feel ill and are running a fever, please stay home. There has been a lot of misinformation on social media, so please refer the official Goliad County Fair Association Facebook page or the Goliad County AgriLife website. Please refer any division you might have to you chairman. Please see list below.

Commercial Heifer exhibitors WILL NOT bring their heifers to the show. Heifers will be judged at a later date and will still be classified as they were when record books were turned in. Interviews will still be done conducted at your assigned time at the county extension office.



The homemaking division has thought about the status of the 2020 show. While we know our exhibitors have worked hard on their projects, we must ensure the well-being of our community, safety of our judges and the future of our show.  We will hold our homemaking show at a later date to be determined in the near future.  Champions in each food category and the high point winners will still participate in the Champion Auction when it is held. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.  The 2020 Goliad County Homemaking Show is not canceled, only delayed. We hope everyone understands. This decision will ensure we maintain the best show in the area. Stay tuned!
