Queen Contest

2021 Queen - Macy Narro; 2021 Little Miss - Harper Gass
The Fair Queen Contest is a long standing tradition at the Burleson County Fair. Although the criteria for the queen contest has evolved over the years, these hard working young ladies are tasked with promoting the Burleson County Fair and also perform the duty of selling advanced fair memberships. Fair Queen Contestants are selected by local schools, organizations and/or businesses within Burleson County. These Contestants compete for the prestigious title of Burleson County Fair Queen as well as scholarships given by the Burleson County Fair Association.
