About the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo

Also called the Rodeo Houston, the HLSR is the world’s largest entertainment and livestock exhibition that takes place at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The 20-day-long event celebrates agriculture, education entertainment and western heritage. Since it started in 1932, the Houston Livestock Show and Radio has committed $283 million to scholarships, research, endowments, calf scramble participants, junior show exhibitors, School Art participants and other educational youth programs. The rodeo is kicked off by the Downtown Rodeo Roundup, the Downtown Rodeo parade, the ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run, and the World Championship BBQ Contest. The many events featured include championship rodeo, livestock competitions, concerts, a carnival, pig racing, barbecue, the Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition, shopping, sales and livestock auctions. The city of Houston celebrates with Go Texan Day the Friday before the rodeo, as residents dress in western wear. Trail rides that start in other areas of Texas and end in Houston precede the rodeo.

The World Championship Bar-b-que Contest or "The Cookoff" started in 1974 and the three-day event has more than 350 teams participating each year. Another popular event is the Calf Scramble which features 14 calves and 28 students who try to capture one of the calves and bring it back into the winners square. Along with the calf scramble, other events include Mutton Bustin', a new attraction where 5 and 6-year-olds ride on top of sheep for 8 seconds. Rodeo Houston also features bull riding, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, chuck wagon races, and lady barrel racing.

Past performers at the rodeo have included musical legends like Kiss, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Selena, Bon Jovi, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many more, featuring a variety of music such as country, rock, blues, Tejano and pop, and stand-up comedians and actors as well.
