Fort Bend County Fair: Williams Elected President

Jennifer Williams

The Fort Bend County Fair has elected Jennifer Williams as the 2023 Fair President. Williams’ commitment to the Fair is loyal. “I wholeheartedly support our mission and believe in providing for the education of the youth of Fort Bend County. When I first volunteered at the age of 16, I knew I wanted to dedicate my time and support to this organization,” said Williams.

As a high school student, Williams began volunteering with the Sponsorship Committee in 1996. From participating in the youth arts and crafts contest to marching with the Lamar Consolidated High School Mighty Mustang Band as a member of the Color Guard, Williams has actively participated in the Fair. She has been a fair goer, a livestock mom and a volunteer in her many roles.

In 2010, Williams was elected to the Fair’s Board and has overseen many committees, such as Budget, Stick-Horse Rodeo, Children’s Tractor Pull, Commercial Heifer Auction, Emergency Management, Security, Entertainment, Exceptional Rodeo, Fair Club, Freezer Sale, Jr Livestock Auction, Jr. Royalty, Office Assistance, Livestock Show, Magazine, Parade, Queen Scholarship Contest, Senior Citizen’s Day, Special Citizen’s, Fair Ambassadors, Sponsorship, Talent Contest and Art Auction. Before joining the Board, Williams served as a member on the following committees, including Chairperson for the Fair Club Committee, Sponsorship Committee, founder of the Emergency Management Committee, Senior Citizens Day Committee and the Parade Committee. As Fair President, Williams is committed to being more visible in the community and open to new ideas while continuing to provide great entertainment.

Williams is a lifelong resident of Fort Bend County and is a 22-year resident of Missouri City. She is the proud mother to two sons, Ryan, a recent Texas A&M graduate, and Sean, a Senior at Clements High School. “I’m ready to get everyone involved from all ends of the county. I think I bring a unique perspective to the Board, as I grew up on the West Side of the Brazos, and I have made my home on the East Side. Fort Bend County truly is my home. I have lived here my whole life and have watched it grow to what it is today,” said Williams.

The 87th Annual Fort Bend County Fair and Rodeo will run from September 29th to October 8th, 2023. For more information or  to get involved, visit
