START BUYING TICKETS FOR THE SAN ANTONIO STOCK SHOW AND RODEO NOW! (SEE LINK)
18 days in February, Rain or Snow or Sunny, you never know, but something for everybody at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. If you get the actual Rodeo tickets you get into the AT&T center for the largest indoor PRCA Rodeo and then it’s followed by the entertainer for that night. For the line-up of entertainers you can click on the details button at the top. This also includes getting into the grounds, but not parking (parking $10-$25).
If you want to go to just the grounds you have the carnival, shopping, demonstrations, food and drinks, and the actual stock shows. The shopping is in the old coliseum and a couple of other building, packed full of clothes, jewelry, tack and all kinds of specialty items. The demonstrations range from pig races to bicycle acrobatics. But we can’t forget the actual stock shows with thousands of contestants competing for scholarships and top ranking.
This is a great all day adventure for kids! There is plenty to do and most of it is hands-on, so plan a good bath for afterwards. Learn about all livestock and even pet a few. If that is not something that sounds fun, go ride some rides or shop. YES! Plenty of shopping to do. Wear your walking shoes/boots.
