The Fort Bend Fair Association is proud to announce 2011 as the Diamond Anniversary of the Fair. “75 Years-What a Ride” will be the theme for the 2011 Fair. “We have many new and exciting events planned to celebrate our anniversary,” stated 2011 Fair President William Carter. “We will be adding one more day to the Fair which will include a PRCA Bull Bash, some new special attractions and we are working on a great entertainment lineup that will be announced soon,” he added. The Fair Season will officially kick off on Friday, August 19 with a Style Show showcasing our 2011 Fair Queen Candidates
Another new addition this year will be a 75th Anniversary Cookbook. Not only will the commemorative cookbook have delicious recipes from our community but will also include history and photos from the past 75 fairs. The Fair Association and Directors-in-charge Elizabeth Duff Drozd and Tammy Osina Felinski are calling for all members of the community to submit recipes for the cookbook. Recipes will be accepted for appetizers & beverages, soups & salads, vegetables & side dishes, main courses, breads & rolls and deserts. Submissions can be made to the Fair office by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to P.O. Box 428, Rosenberg, TX 77471 Attn: Recipes.
Recipes should have a list of ingredients followed by cooking directions. Typed recipes are preferred but will accept handwritten if legible. Please include your name and contact information as well as your relationship to the fair past or present (i.e. life member, scholarship winner, president, exhibitor, Fair Queen, committee member, fair supporter, rodeo competitor, etc) when submitting your recipes. All recipes must be submitted by May 1.
