Experience The Rodeo

Rodeo Action Begins: Friday, Feb. 12, 2021

At the 2021 Rodeo, catch 14 PRCA Rodeo performances followed by entertainment along with a Ranch Rodeo and Xtreme Bulls. Doors open two hours prior to each performance.

Each action-packed Rodeo kicks off with the patriotic Grand Entry and features bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding. You don't want to miss the specialty acts as well as mutton bustin' and the calf scramble.

Rodeo Format

Our tournament-style format includes 14 PRCA rodeo performances where contestants compete back to back in each Bracket. The top four (4) money winners advance to a Semifinal Round and the top five (5) out of each Semifinal advance to the Finals. The most money earned at the end of the Finals will be crowned the San Antonio Rodeo Champion!
