San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo

February 9, 2017 — San Antonio

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has been a tradition in South Texas since 1949. But of late it has grown to receive international recognition including receipt of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year award for an unprecedented eleven consecutive years.

With the largest regular season prize payout in the PRCA (a lavish $1.6 million), and the best bucking stock available—you can be sure the world’s best cowboys and cowgirls come to compete. After the heart stopping rodeo action has ended, fans are treated to top-notch entertainment by some of the best names in the music industry.

Shop ‘til you drop at The Shops at the Rodeo—where over 500 shops will showcase their merchandise in climate controlled venues. Enjoy live music on multiple stages, an open air food court featuring healthy and quirky fair food. Explore agricultural learning centers, livestock and horse show events, exhibits and attractions. Partake in product sampling, the carnival, pony rides and petting zoos. There is truly something for everyone.
