San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo
The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has been a tradition in South Texas since 1950. 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. Western Horse & Gun magazine proclaimed the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo “a must see rodeo”. Cowboys & Indians magazine said, “The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo… the rose of San Antone, has evolved into a world class event”. ProRodeo Sports calls it, “a gold standard event for contestants and fans alike.” The ABA listed it as one of the Top 100 Events and Festivals in North America.
The Rodeo takes place in the spectacular AT&T Center for 18 days, when the NBA Championship Spurs basketball team head off for their “Rodeo Road Trip” and dirt moves on to the floor. Each performance over 15,000 fans are treated to heart-stopping rodeo action that concludes with entertainment by some of the best names in the music industry. With the largest regular season prize payout in the PRCA (a lavish $1.6 million), and the best bucking stock available, you are sure to see the best cowboys and cowgirls in the world.
Shop ‘til you drop at The Shops at the Rodeo over 500 themed booths filled with unique merchandise in climate controlled venues.

Over 60,000 animals will parade in and out of the 18-day event for livestock shows and horse shows, Family Fair and Rodeo; with many destined to compete in one of the largest Junior Livestock Shows in the world. Buyers and exhibitors travel from across North America for the opportunity to show their animals or to bid on the fine stock at the Ranch Gelding and Select Horse Sales, purebred and commercial cattle sales, and Junior Livestock Auction.
To top it off, did you know the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is a non-profit organization? That means the money you spend helps educate the youth of Texas.
