“At the Williamson County Fair, we are honored to serve our community by not only providing entertainment and joy but also by investing in the future of our local students. Through scholarships, we help pave the way for county students to be successful,” says Fair Chairman, Diane Giddens. “Implemented after the passing of Bill Veevers, his memorial scholarship award implemented in 2022 recognizes applicants who exemplify his community service.”

Vendor applications and sponsorship packets are also accessible online, encouraging both existing and prospective partners to help commemorate the Fair’s 20th anniversary.

The 20th Annual Williamson County Fair will be held Friday, August 2 through Saturday, August 10 at the Williamson County AgExpo Park, and will be marked by 9 Days of Fun celebrating this important milestone.
