With 150 years of tradition, the Washington County Fair is “The Oldest County Fair in Texas”. The Washington County Fair is an annual event held each September in Brenham, Texas which has become one of Washington County’s premium festivals.
The Washington County Fair offers several days of exciting events for the whole family.
