Message from the President

As President of the Tyler County Chamber of Commerce, I welcome you to east Texas and a county full of happy people with laid back attitudes. When you visit, you will find southern hospitality from our citizens and southern beauty from our large forests and sparkling lakes for camping, fishing and swimming. Our rolling hills give magnificent views of tall pine trees interspersed in the spring with blooming dogwood and redbud trees.

Woodville is the county seat and home of the Tyler County Chamber of Commerce. Each spring the county hosts the Tyler County Dogwood Festival which includes a parade and a historical play. It is the oldest outdoor pageant in Texas and always held the first weekend in April. The last weekend in March is Tyler County Western Weekend with a western parade and rodeo. The weekend prior to Western Weekend is Festival of the Arts with activities at Heritage Village and Emporium for the Arts.

The Tyler County Fair is held each fall with animal judging, an FFA/4H auction and carnival rides. The first weekend of December is Christmas in Tyler County. This features residents and guests in Dickens era costumes, the arrival of Santa and the lighting of the courthouse square. Present at all of these events are booths featuring arts & crafts and delicious food. Check out our website throughout the year for other great family activities.

Tyler County is the northern entrance of the Big Thicket National Preserve where you can find eco-tourism treasures. Come see us and discover a great place to visit, to work and to live. Again, welcome and thank you for visiting our website.

Carrie Edwards
