A word from 2020 Fair President, Sean Gutierrez
It is truly an honor to serve as your 84th President of the Fort Bend County Fair and Rodeo. My goal this year is to provide an elite Fair experience. To do so, I am reaching out to our partners, vendors, volunteers, sponsors, committees and you the fair-goer to see how we can make our Fair an overall premiere event. I'm looking forward to bringing changes and trying new ideas to make our Fair a memorable ten-day event that will bring new folks into the Fair and recapture the hearts of those that don't visit our Fair anymore.
When I started high school, I began as a volunteer firefighter with the Missouri City Fire Department. It seemed like every free minute and weekends that I wasn't in school or working, it was filled with me running calls and working shifts at the fire station. That's where I realized I loved the opportunity to give back to the community. My time with the Fair started back in the early nineties as I volunteered with the Red Cross manning the first-aid building during the Fair. I then got involved with the medical committee when it replaced the Red Cross and also the safety committee. Since the beginning, I have scheduled my vacation time to coincide with the Fair; I love giving back and helping everyone make the Fair a success. I enjoy working side-by-side with all the other dedicated volunteers working just as hard, putting in the blood, sweat, and tears for our youth. That’s why my theme for the 2020 Fair is... "Volunteers make the Difference!"
The success we enjoy for our Fair is not possible without a strong Fair family. From our incredible office staff, my fellow directors, the volunteers that devote many, many hours, the commitment from the sponsors and donors, to the support from our auction buyers and the community, it is an enormous effort. I so tremendously appreciate these efforts.
I would also like to thank my family and especially my queen Barbara for all the unconditional support, love, and patience that y'all give me. I could not do this without y'all!!!
The Fort Bend County Fair has been creating memories for over 84 years, so if you are continuing a family tradition or have never been to our Fair, come on out enjoy your Fair and make memories that last a lifetime.
Sean M. Gutierrez, President
Fort Bend County Fair Association
