Rodeo Action Begins: Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022

At the 2022 Rodeo, come see 19 PRCA Rodeo performances followed by entertainment along with special rodeo performances on specific nights - Noche Del Vaquero*, Ranch Rodeo** and Xtreme Bulls. Doors open 90 minutes prior to each performance.

Each action-packed PRCA Rodeo kicks off with the patriotic Grand Entry and features bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, breakaway 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.

*Noche del Vaquero -A celebration of South Texas heritage, the Noche del Vaquero will honor the traditions, artistic skills and pageantry of our culture. See Ballet Folkloricó, escaramuzas, Bull & Bronco riding, charro and mariachi exhibitions.

**Ranch Rodeo - A throwback to the old west when neighboring ranches would get together to see whose cowboys were the best riders, the best ropers and generally the toughest hands. Teams of real working cowboys in direct competition with one another in events similar to the tasks they face every day such as steer loading, calf branding, roping and some fun events as well.
