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 fifth 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!

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.

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.


Pre-purchase your grounds admission passes to make your entry into our event a breeze!


Please send us an email at schooltours@sarodeo.com

Experience the Tour

Students will visit a number of areas such as Animal Adventures, Horse Discovery, the Dairy Center, Wildlife exhibit and the H-E-B Buckaroo Farms where they will learn more about agriculture through interactive activities. Classes will get the opportunity to pet real life animals and will be led by students with knowledge on the importance of agriculture who are able to explain that to your classroom!
