Kendall County Fair Association

The first Kendall County Fair was held in Boerne, Texas in 1905.  Communication was very limited so it was imperative that a central meeting be held at least annually so the people of the area would have a chance to exchange ideas, recipes and news of events.  Thus was born the idea of the county fair and the people of the county gathered together in the “Opera House” located in downtown Boerne to hold the first Kendall County Fair on September 4, 1905.

Beautiful Herff Park, located at 1307 River Road is the home of the Kendall County Fair.  The fifty-five acre park is studded with live oak trees, which make an ideal setting for the annual Labor-Day week-end fair.  The fair grounds also are home to the Kendall County Junior Livestock Sow Association and the Kendall County 4-H Horse Club as well as to many sports and celebration events.  Om’s Christmas Fair is also held at the fairgrounds annually the first week-end in December and is also sponsored and presented by the Fair Association.
