For over 50 years, the Stonewall Peach JAMboree and Rodeo has paid tribute to Gillespie County’s most famous crop — the peach.
And this year’s celebration on Friday and Saturday, June 21-22, is no different.
While the main ingredient is limited this year due to a late frost and then hail, a full schedule of events for the entire family is planned by the sponsoring Stonewall Chamber of Commerce for the two-day celebration.
Highlights of the 52nd Annual Stonewall Peach JAMboree and Rodeo include rodeo performances, nightly dancing, baking contests, queen’s contest, games, auction, entertainment and more.
The gates open Friday at 6 p.m.
Also at that time, registration for the mutton busting begins. There is a $20 entry fee for the mutton busting, which is limited to the first 40 contestants.
The first heat of mutton busting begins at 7 p.m. with the second heat during the rodeo performance.
