Get ready for the biggest party in Texas, attracting almost 2 million visitors a year to the world’s largest rodeo and livestock exhibition.
Also known as Rodeo Houston, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is so much more…
The three-week whoop-de-doo at Reliant Park also offers one the country’s largest barbecue cook-offs, an exciting colorful Downtown parade (this year scheduled for Saturday, February 26), and entertainment spectaculars featuring the country’s most popular music stars from March 1 – 20, 2011.
How to get 2011 Houston Rodeo Tickets
Tickets went on sale in late October 2010 and are available at the Reliant Park Box office and online at http://www.rodeohouston.com. Tickets cover the cost of admission to Reliant Stadium, Reliant Arena, Reliant Center and the carnival with kids under two years of age admitted free.
Ticket prices range from the center of the action $300 chute area (located directly behind the bucking chutes) — to the popular action seats affording up-close views at $86 — to the far more affordable $18 “nosebleeds” in the upper level (bring the binoculars.)

Houston’s population of 2 million also becomes part of the show, as they get into the the spirit of “Go Texan Day” (in 2011 it falls on Friday, February 25th), donning their best western wear, cowboy hats, and boots for the once-a-year celebration. Another major part of the pre-festivities is the World Championship Barb-B-Que Contest kicking off at Reliant Park that same weekend.
