Since 1932, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ has committed more than $500 million to the youth of Texas. This Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, supported by more than 35,000 volunteers, is the world’s largest livestock show and most innovative rodeo. RODEOHOUSTON® features the best cowboys and cowgirls competing for a purse of more than $2 million, and hosts the biggest names in the music industry. With tickets averaging more than $20 less than the national concert ticket average, the Rodeo is providing a family-friendly and affordable event. A ticket to the rodeo/concert also grants entrance to the NRG Park grounds, where the largest Western shopping mall is open for business in NRG Center. In addition to shopping, great food and a thrilling carnival, kids can experience pony rides, petting zoos, a live animal birthing center and other agricultural displays. There’s something for the whole family at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo!
