BIO: Since 1932, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ has committed more than $330 million to the youth of Texas. This Section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, supported by nearly 28,000 volunteers, is the world’s largest livestock show and most innovative rodeo. RODEOHOUSTON features the best cowboys and cowgirls competing for a purse of $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 Show is providing a family-friendly and affordable event. A ticket to the Rodeo also grants entrance to the Show grounds, where the largest Western shopping mall is open for business in Reliant 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!
