Hang on!~

Fort Bend County Fair Association is excited to announce the return of the always-popular mutton bustin’ competition at this year’s fair.

Bring on the sheep!

The always-popular mutton bustin’ competition returns to Fort Bend County Fair.

This year’s registration will be only online at fortbendcountyfair.com.

Online registration will open on Tuesday, Aug. 10 at 8 a.m.

Children 4-7 years of age and who weigh less than 55 pounds the day of the competition are eligible to compete.

In the past few years, parents have camped outside of the fairgrounds to guarantee their child’s spot in the competition.

“Our committee is always working hard to put safety first and to make it easier for the parents. It’s a win-win for all involved and no more having to camp out in the wee hours,” said Cindy Schmidt, Fort Bend County Fair Association’s fair manager.

Enter once on the fair’s website by clicking on the preferred date, complete the entry and submit payment.

A confirmation email will be sent verifying registeration.

If the preferred date you chose is unavailable, go to the next available date. If all dates are full, there is the “alternate” option. Alternates will only be able to ride should someone opts out. Ride dates for alternates will be determined based on availability.

All contestants will receive a buckle donated by Chris Dostal’s Fine Jewelry and Corporate Solutions. The winner of each rodeo will receive a Grand Champion Buckle for the night’s highest score. Mutton Bustin is a fan-favorite and everyone is welcome to cheer on their favorite cowboy or cowgirl.

Good luck Mutton Busters! For rules and information visit https://www.fortbendcountyfair.com/events/2021/mutton-bustin.
