COLDSPRING — In just about a week, a premier event in San Jacinto County kicks off as the 75th annual San Jacinto County Fair and Rodeo begins.

There will be more than a week of entertainment, competition, animal showing, crafts, and of course, even a carnival.

A hometown favorite, David Allen Franklin Band will perform on Sept. 17 from 9 p.m.-1 a.m.

Also on that Saturday, the SJC BBQ Cook-off will be held, with judging starting at 11 a.m. and awards at 3 p.m.

Other events include a battle of the bands, a queen contest, a parade, the livestock sale, and more.

Information for the fair, as well as registration forms for the various events, can be found at sjcfairandrodeo.com.
