Wagner’s Carnival has been a family owned business since the mid 1970s.

Albert and his wife Denise started the business in 1977 after a long history of carnivals in their families. To this day they still own the Merry-Go-Round that belonged to Albert’s parents. They have three kids who all grew up on the carnival. Their oldest Jason, attended Texas A&M University, and is now co-owner of the show. Jason currently owns most of the games on the show as well. Haley, the only daughter, graduated from Texas A&M University Corpus Christi in 2011. She is currently a teacher and helps on the weekends. Haley and her husband, Abe, own two rides on the show. Their youngest, Albert II, graduated from Texas A&M University in 2008, and is currently a teacher and a coach. Wagner’s Carnival is and always has been a family owned and operated business. Carnival employees are more than that; they are family too. We have always tried to keep the fun family atmosphere when it comes to running our show.

Wagner’s Carnival prides itself on safety and cleanliness. All of our employees must wear a Wagner’s Carnival Uniform and ID badge Our employees are trained to operate the equipment, and are tested repeatedly throughout the year. Our equipment is inspected daily and is watched throughout the day by the operator, supervisor, and the owners.  Wagner’s Carnival travels between the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska setting up numerous fairs and festivals.  The company is based out of Aransas Pass, Texas and has most of their dates in Texas.
