Commercial Exhibitors

The Western Heritage Classic Trade Show is an invitational trade show that has continued to emerge and transform over the last 35+ years. The Taylor County Expo Center has had the privilege of hosting the elite of commercial vendors/exhibits during the Western Heritage Classic. We are thrilled that you would like to be considered to join us in celebrating true, western heritage and ranching traditions during our three-day extravaganza.

Our booth spaces vary in size, location, and venue to ensure that all Western Heritage Classic members, participants and enthusiasts are given the opportunity to experience all the Expo has to offer. We welcome around 35,000 visitors during our three-day event who are ready to shop till they drop, eat delicious food and experience great, action-packed ranching heritage.

The Western Heritage Classic reserves the right to assign space in accordance with other exhibitors and products.
