The college town of Denton in the Dallas-Fort Worth area is where the North Texas Fair and Rodeo takes place. This is a combination competition/standard Texas fair, meaning there is plenty of live music, barbecue, carnival rides, games and a parade, but also livestock shows and competitions in food, beauty, art and, of course, rodeo. This is a major festival in the area, drawing over 100,000 people for its nine days each year, and all proceeds go to funding scholarships and community initiatives. It’s also quite a storied event, with roots all the way back to 1927.
