Ralls: 22nd Annual Cotton Boll Festival

May 9, 2017 (All day)

22nd Annual Cotton Boll Festival 
September 9, 2017

The 22nd Annual Cotton Boll Festival will be held on September 9, 2017 in downtown Ralls.  This one day event is jammed packed with live music, food, vendors, games and so much more. This event is free to the public and we would love for you to join us!

The Cotton Boll Queens Contest is held every year during the Cotton Boll Fest. This contest is open to all of Crosby County, girls K-12th grade.   The Contest is not a traditional beauty pageant, but a fun upbeat contest. For more information on the Queens Contest click here.

Last year, we introduced the Pie Contest with much success.  We are proud to bring it back this year for all Crosby County residents.  For more information on the Pie Contest click here.

We are also proud to announce that we are bringing back the Photo Contest this year. We are looking for original, striking images of agricultural life in West Texas.  For more information on the Photo Contest click here.   
We are currently accepting Vendors, Entertainment artist and Sponsors. Please contact the Chamber office for more information.
