San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo

A visit to San Antonio in February wouldn't be complete without a visit to this rodeo and agricultural extravaganza. Aside from rodeo shows, there is also a livestock show and a horse show. There is also plenty of great shopping, eating, a carnival, and rock n' roll and Latin music in equal measure. The show focuses on making clear to visitors the impact of agriculture on our daily lives, through the means of various exhibitions such as Animal Adventures. Further entertainment is available in the form of a petting zoo, pony rides, a Ford Truck Corral, a gold tournament, a ball, a casino night, and a carnival. Seven venues are available with live music that runs throughout the duration of the show, one of them being the Songwriters Front Porch that gives a little bit of limelight to songwriters. The horse and livestock auctions may not be part of the entertainment, but they are well worth a visit and can become very exciting and fast-paced.
