Yeehaw! The 2-week long event is finally here again, and all of San Antonio is ready. The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has grown to be one of the largest and most prestigious events in San Antonio with over one and a half million visitors entering the grounds each year.
The Rodeo pays homage to San Antonio’s roots as a cattle town. In 1854, one of the first Texas Agriculture Fairs in Texas was held in our great city, kickstarting the annual gathering of farmers, cattle ranchers, and other figures of the community to sell and buy goods. However, as the fair’s attendance quickly grew, the lack of adequate facilities to showcase their livestock became apparent.
Fast forward to 1950 when the first ever San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo took place. Since then, the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo has drawn millions and millions of visitors from all over the country. Attendees can enjoy events like petting zoos, barrel racing, BBQ cook offs, concerts, and more.
This year’s Rodeo will feature concerts by Top Country Recording Artists Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, and Kacey Musgraves, plus several other popular bands and artists.
There is so much going on during the next two weeks that we just can’t list all the events here! For a complete schedule and ticket information please visit the website.
Let’s Rodeo San Antonio!
