Motorcycles lined up outside the 11th Street Cowboy Bar in Bandera during the 2018 Rumble on the River motorcycle rally. We are providing an Economic Impact Assessment of Mansfield Park to the Bandera Economic Development Corporation and the Bandera County Commissioners. Mansfield Park is the historic rodeo grounds situated just west of the City of Bandera and owned by Bandera County. It hosts numerous 4-H and community events annually as well as three major rodeos and two motorcycle rallies. The purpose of the Economic Impact Assessment is to evaluate the amount of revenue brought into the county by the events hosted at Mansfield Park and to provide scenarios for increased impacts if capital improvements to the facility and changes to its operations were made, allowing the facility to support increased activity and event attendees.
The project had to be approved by the Bandera Economic Development Corporation (BEDC), the Bandera City Council and the Bandera County Commissioners Court in a series of public hearings. We are reporting to the BEDC and Bandera County Commissioners, and recently released our Interim Report, which you can read here.
