Founded in 1938, Rodeo Austin includes a carnival, live entertainment, competition events, food court, petting zoo, open livestock show, pig races, mutton busting, BBQ cook-off, a Wild West show, super shoot out and much more!
The mission of this historically-rich, two-week rodeo is to provide scholarships to deserving Texas youth. Last year, $2.2 million was awarded to Texas youth and $484,000 was given in scholarships to 45 students. In addition, Rodeo Austin has an economic impact to the Austin area of over $68 million each year.
This year, the 16 nights of concerts will present an all-star cast including Loretta Lynn, Clay Walker, Dustin Lynch, Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam, Josh Abbott Band, Eli Young Band, Thompson Square, Chris Young, The Temptations, Josh Turner, Austin Mahone, Scott McCreery, Capital Cities and Kevin Fowler.
It’s not hard to understand why it takes over 2,000 volunteers, donors and sponsors each year to make Rodeo Austin a success.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.rodeoaustin.com or by calling 512.477.6060. Fairgrounds admission, ProRodeo performance and concert performance are all included in the ticket price. Parking costs $10 per vehicle and season passes for the fair and carnival are available.
The Bucher Group hopes you will put Rodeo Austin on your calendar and enjoy the official sport of Texas and a true Texas tradition!
