This year marks the 70th year of the Victoria Livestock Show founded by the Victoria Jaycees. It is the largest event held in Victoria and surrounding counties each year with over 14,000 visitors annually. It is one of the few remaining livestock shows where 100% of the proceeds from each animal sold at the auction is paid to the 4-H/FFA Junior Exhibitors.
The mission of the Victoria Livestock Show is to provide an opportunity for the youth of Victoria County to exhibit their 4-H and FFA projects, developing agricultural knowledge and leadership skills.
A past volunteer's quote constantly reminds each of us "The Show is for the Kids!".
In 1946, show was originally founded by the Victoria Jaycees, but two organizations, the Jaycees and the Victoria Livestock Show Association, handled different aspects of the event. In 2012, the two organizations came together to form the Victoria Fair Association Inc.
