  • Location: George Ranch Historical Park
  • Overview

    This February, the 2nd annual George Ranch Rodeo will spotlight the amazing history and essential role black cowboys played in Fort Bend County ranching operations and honor Fred, McCullar and Ben Smith. Fred Smith was born in 1857 in Texas and worked as a cowboy for the Davis and George families most of his life — a path his sons McCullar and Ben also followed. By the early 1900s, McCullar acted as lead cowboy for the Ranch, and he and his brother Ben were both known for their amazing roping skills and knowledge of cattle.

    This full-day event will include a rodeo with prize pots, slack events, mutton-busting, a variety of food and marketplace vendors, entertainment and other fun activities for children.
