North Texas Fair & Rodeo Quickly Approaching

[DENTON, TEXAS] – Wrapping up summertime with fun and excitement for the entire family, the North Texas Fair & Rodeo (NTFR) brings delicious fair food, carnival rides, exceptional vendors, live music and intense rodeo action to Denton, Texas every August. The 94th annual NTFR will take place August 19-27, 2022.

Nightly rodeos start at 7:30 p.m. followed by some of the hottest country music! Aaron Lewis will kick off the event on the Miller Lite Main Stage Friday, August 19, and the fun will continue with headlining performances by Aaron Lewis, the Bellamy Brothers, La Zenda Nortena, Jake Hooker & the Outsiders, Dylan Wheeler, Kody West, Casey Donahew, Stoney LaRue, Charley Crockett and Josh Turner. 

Every August, NTFR consistently brings exceptional country music to the north Texas region. Nevertheless, with a rapidly growing association built on several generations of memberships and volunteers, NTFR strives to place family fun and tradition at the forefront of everything it does.

“We continue to support our youth, agriculture and community,” said NTFR Executive Director Glenn Carlton. “We strive every year to make this event better than it was the previous year. We want to bring you fun and excitement for the whole family.”

The NTFR accomplishes this by hosting talented musical artists, professional and youth rodeos, livestock exhibitions, a premier midway and special exhibits.

Continuing the legacy of the association, this year’s event will once again bring the north Texas community together to cherish our western heritage with LIVE entertainment, FUN attractions and NEW exhibits! The 2022 NTFR will feature two new family-friendly exhibits, Puppy Pals and Nature Nick’s Animal Adventures.

The NTFR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of western heritage. All revenue is reinvested into programs, scholarships and facilities. The NTFR contributes around $500,000 each year to area youth. According to the Center of Economic Development at the University of North Texas, the NTFR and its facilities have a $7 million economic impact in Denton County and an approximately $4 million impact on the City of Denton.
