As if Texans needed a reason to grab their boots and hats, Rodeo Austin kicks off today and continues an annual Lone Star tradition that delights millions of families each year.
Steeped in the celebrated customs of family fun, cowboy heritage and agriculture, our action-packed Texas rodeos offer world-class roping and riding, one-of-a-kind fair food, carnival rides, petting zoos and the biggest stars in music. No wonder our Texas pride has a worldwide reputation.
And while they feature more fun than you could hope to corral in a day, Texas rodeos also are very educational. You really do walk away with a new appreciation for agriculture and the hard work of our farmers and ranchers who help make Texas a $100 billion powerhouse of productivity.
The dust may have settled in Fort Worth and San Antonio, but with Austin saddled up and the world’s largest rodeo event in Houston running through March 17, there is still plenty of cowboy culture and agriculture to enjoy with your family and friends. Round ‘em up and rodeo, Texas.
