The Richland County Fair & Rodeo is Almost Here

The Richland County Fair and Rodeo is not too far away. All the rip-roaring fun that Richland County has been waiting for all year long will be Aug. 3–6 and it is right around the bend.

Chase Rice is doing the Saturday night concert with special guest, Casey Donahew. According to, Chase Rice grew up in North Carolina listening to Garth Brooks and other singers who reshuffled and updated country music into something more in line with pop in the 1990s. Rice first came into the public’s eye in 2010, when he was a contestant on the TV show “Survivor:” Nicaragua; he eventually finished second and started releasing albums and singles once he left the show. In 2019, Rice appeared as a guest on the reality show “The Bachelor”, playing a private concert for bachelor Peter Weber and his date, Victoria Fuller, whom Rice had previously dated. The drama-laden episode aired in Jan. 2020, just as the singer released his next album.

According to his website, Casey is a favorite on the local Texas music scene. He has 21 #1 singles and is a nationally hot touring act who consistently sells out venues all across the country. Chase Rice and Casey Donahew will be playing the main concert on Saturday, Aug. 6, at 7 p.m. Early bird tickets are $60 for reserved seats and $55 for general seating. The week of the fair, prices go up to $65 for reserved seats and $60 for general seating.

The PRCA rodeo will be presented by Brockman Rodeo, LLC, a locally owned stock company, both nights.
