50th annual Texas Rice Festival

The Texas Rice Festival board and Chambers County officials met after the flood. Due to the community devastation, they made the decision to cancel the 2019 festival. Please check back on the TRF social media and website for details. Many posts are being made, but all official information will be posted directly by us. The board sees your questions and they will be addressed as soon as they can. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this natural disaster.

Update: TRF Horse Show, Livestock Show, and BBQ Cook-off may be rescheduled for a future date. 2019 Ride Cards (not gate tickets) that are presented at Market Basket next year during sale dates will be exchanged for a 2020 Ride Card.

Update: TRF Vendor Booth Operators – The TRF will roll booth rentals over to 2020. No refunds will be made. Please contact the TRF office in a couple of weeks to get details.

*** Please note: Both TRF offices were flooded. Please be patient with return calls if you have left messages or emails. ***
