Plan Your Trip

Texas Select Custom Cutlery Event will be housed in the Austin County Fair Convention & Expo center and the adjacent covered show barns in Bellville, Texas.

Bellville is conveniently located about an hour West of the Greater Houston metropolitan area, and an easy drive from Austin, San Antonio, and College Station.

There are many AirBnB’s in the area; if you prefer a hotel we recommend looking in the neighboring towns of Brenham or Sealy.

There are also RV sites at Clark Park (City of Bellville), at the Austin County Fair Grounds, at Coushatte Recreation Ranch, and Jellystone Park in Waller.
