General Commercial Exhibitor
The West Texas Fair & Rodeo is
an invitational Trade Show that has grown in popularity and size over the last
40+ years, bringing in over 140,000 people. We are excited to host some of the best shopping in the Big Country! Last year in 2021 we set record breaking numbers for our general admission, carnival, livestock show exhibitors and PRCA Rodeo Attendees. Our booth spaces vary in size, location, and venue, so that the West Texas Fair
& Rodeo customers, participant, and enthusiasts can view all there is to see
across the whole Expo grounds!
The Display Building is an indoor shopping area located in the center of the Fairgrounds next to the Big Country Hall and the Carnival. It is easily accessible and a great place to take a break with the family to do some shopping. This building offers a range of products and services that
are hand selected each year. This building accommodates 77 vendor booths
within the 18,000 square ft building, which allows a steady flow of
Booth rent is $450 per 10x10 and $475 for a corner 10x10 booth.

*** ALL FOOD VENDORS MUST VERIFY THEIR MENUS WITH THE CITY OF ABILENE HEALTH DEPARTMENT BEFORE APPLYING***
All food vendors need to inquire questions related to health inspections and permits to the City of Abilene Health Department. They do not allow tents because it is a 10 day event unless it is fully netted. Environmental Health Department contact is 325-437-4586. Please refer all questions to them pertaining to meeting their requirements. Before any food vendors apply you MUST submit your food menu to the Health Department to make sure that it is acceptable. Please do NOT assume that it is okay because when it comes to inspections before Fair is started and they say there is an issue, you can NOT add new food.
