Things to do: Austin Rodeo

So you’re coming to visit Texas and you want the full Country Western experience?  Well after you book your epic horseback riding adventure with Maverick Stables, consider a trip to the infamous Austin Rodeo.  You can get all glammed up in yer finest cowgirl boots, sport some sequins and ride your best horse -ahem… modern four-wheeled transportation device– into town.  The Austin Rodeo is most definitely one of the Top Ten Things to Do, and if you miss it while you’re here on vacation (or even if you miss it when you’re a local), then you’re just not getting the full Texas adventure.

This year the rodeo is kicking off with Dwight Yoakum on March 11th.  Enjoy all the great country music the Rodeo has to offer when you purchase tickets to get in and get rowdy with Texas Rodeo favorites like calf roping, mutton bustin’ and barrel racing.

Rodeo and concert tickets range from $20 – $175.  This price has got you fully covered for the day, and it includes admission to the fair grounds.  Have little ones ready to get in on the fun? Children under 2 years old are admitted for free if they’re willing to park their boot scooter right on mom or dad’s lap.  If you just want to take a peak at the fun outside of the concert and rodeo etoricoxib online events, you can check out the fair grounds for a day or season pass.  Day passes are $5-$8 or you can just fork out for the season pass for just $15 for children and $25 for adults.  Want to bump it up at the fair grounds?  You can include a wristband.  Season passes for adults costs $100 and for children it’s $90.  Looking for a Fun Daycation in Austin?  Daily passes are just $33 for adults and $30 for kiddos if you pay online.  It’s $43 and $40, respectively, at the gates, so make sure you plan it out ahead of time if you want to save some money.

Coming from the BBQ Capital of Texas here in Lockhart, I’d be kidding if I said the Rodeo BBQ is the best I’ve had, but it is pretty good and your wristband will cover you for Austin BBQ admittance as well.  Score!
