San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo
The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has been a tradition in South Texas since 1949. Today, it receives international recognition including receipt of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year award for over a decade. 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 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. Over 17,000 fans are treated to unrivaled rodeo action that concludes with entertainment by some of the best names in the music industry. With one of the largest regular season prize payouts in the PRCA and the best bucking stock available, you are sure to see the best cowboys and cowgirls in the world.
