About School Tours

School Tours offers a fun and educational program designed for young people to learn about the rodeo, livestock and the important role agriculture plays in the economy. Kindergarten through third grade students are guided around the fairgrounds by local 4-H and FFA high school tour guides where the students get a taste of Texas heritage and witness first-hand the fun and excitement offered at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo!

Experience the Tour

Students will visit a number of areas such as Animal Adventures and Horse Discovery where they will learn more about agriculture through interactive activities and view live farm animals.

How to Bring Your School

All Touring Schools and Tour Guide reservations are taken on a first come/first serve basis. Home schools, public and private schools that are not taking part in our program are welcome to attend. These groups can enter through the School Tours area and our committee will assist them as needed for loading/unloading and entrance into the grounds. Fairgrounds admission prices will be required for all Non-Touring Schools.

Tour Guides

High School aged students of the 4-H, FFA and FCCLA organizations from South Texas are invited each year to serve as Tour Guides for this committee. Tour Guides assist in educating the students about agriculture and its valued importance, while sharpening their leadership and responsibility skills. Tours last 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Tour guide reservations are taken on a first come-first serve basis.

Youth Day

Youth Day is held during the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo in which 4-H, FFA, & FCCLA members from across Texas gather to showcase their organizations, activities and project work. Patrons attending the event are treated to arts and crafts, games, demonstrations, sweet treats, and educational activities. All the fun of Youth Day is included with your rodeo or fairgrounds ticket.

Photography Contest

The School Tours Committee also hosts a photography contest as part of the Youth Day activities. The photography contest promotes the interests and talents of youth photographers to patrons at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. Entries are open to the youth of Texas 8 to 18 years of age as of August 31 prior to the start of rodeo and attending public, private, or home school in Texas.
