Rodeo Austin Highlights
Wind up for the rodeo festivities with a meal or two at this years’ cowboy breakfast or BBQ event, where you can two-step with your sweetheart or tuck into a smoked brisket. The cowboy breakfast takes place March 4 and the BBQ Cook-Off will open its doors from March 4-5.
During the Rodeo’s regular hours, head over to Chow Town when you’re ready for a bite to eat.
Take in the glorious long horns at the Open Livestock Show, or watch a newly hatched chick over at the Avenue of Breeds. There are a few varieties of stock shows during Rodeo Austin, including the Junior show, where 4-H and FFA members compete for their place in the Youth Auction.
Rodeo Austin's History
Since its inaugural stock show in 1938, the Rodeo Austin has grown into an outdoor show unlike any other. Music, food, events, and community are combined to celebrate the western heritage of Texas, and every year it keeps going strong.
