The Stockton Foundation Inc. has acquired 165 acres of land for the Harris County Fair and Rodeo, as announced by Avison Young in a March 10, 2023 news release. Fred Stockton, chairman of the Harris County Fair and Rodeo Association, expressed excitement about the nonprofit group's focus on youth engagement, agricultural education, entertainment, and family-friendly events at the new site.
The first fair and rodeo on this land are expected in late 2024, featuring the reconstruction of the historic Tin Hall from Cypress, TX, closed since 2014. The current venue for the fair and rodeo is the East Montgomery Fair Grounds at Sallas Park in New Caney, held in October.
