Rodeos epitomize the everyday struggles between man, nature, and clowns hiding in barrels.

Continuing a proud history of San Antonio agricultural fairs that stretches back to 1854, The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo plunges guests into 17 days of animal showcases and western fun. Barns all across the grounds bustle with prize critters entered into one of the world's largest livestock shows, and outdoor stages bop with rollicking all-ages music acts. A petting zoo and carnival cater to the littlest dogies in the kid-focused Li'l Partner land, and three major shopping areas with more than 650 vendors outfit cowfolk and their favorite cows in authentic gear. The grounds are open every day until 10 p.m. or midnight, depending on weather and the success of organizers' efforts to lasso the sun.
