These are exciting times for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. By any measure, Rodeo Houston 2019 was a smashing success. This was largely accomplished by staying true to their mission of promoting agriculture, supporting Texas youth and education, and providing world-class entertainment with one of the most diverse lineups in Rodeo Houston history.
- Last year, the Rodeo reached an extraordinary milestone in their longstanding support of Texas students when they surpassed $500 million in their commitment to education.
- Thanks to the support of 35,000 volunteers and more than 2.5 million visitors who participated in the 24-day community-wide celebration of Western heritage, Rodeo Houston 2019 was Houston’s largest annual event.
- Last year’s event provided a tremendous boost to the local economy, generating a total economic impact of $227 million and total economic activity of $391 million in Greater Houston.
- Rodeo Houston 2019 also drew record-breaking crowds during several Rodeo Houston performances, and made history at many livestock and horse show competitions.
- Three Rodeo Houston 2019 performances landed on the list of top 25 paid rodeo/concert attendance records, and George Strait’s concert-only performance broke the NRG Stadium record with a paid attendance of over 80,000!
- The livestock and horse show competitions drew 34,474 entries, and junior auction sales generated more than $17 million. Eleven Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion lots set world or Rodeo records, including for the first time in 16 years, the Grand Champion Junior Market Steer record.
