Had a really interesting afternoon/evening at the Rodeo.
The actual rodeo was pretty interesting, with Brad Paisley to finish the show
The exhibits around the show were interesting, but huge crowds made it hard to move around

The people that go there are very nice , very welcoming . The workers are not! When we got tickets (we had the FASTPASS) to get on the carnival rides … every single worker made us WAIT until the people who did not have the fast pass make sure they got in FIRST . They didn’t even pay for the fast pass & the money for tickets … is a WASTE ! The workers screamed at us to go back in the line … MIND YOU , WE HAVE THE FAST PASS AND WE SHOWED IT & still made us go to back for the regular line so we just left that ride . The tickets will last you 3 rides and that’s it . It’s a waste & are WAY TOO OVERPRICED. Overall the food and rodeo … is a great place to go with friends or whoever you love to be with! The only improvements that I recommend for next year is hiring more respectful & nicer workers . Cheaper food , CHEAPER TICKETS .

The rodeo is simply entertaining! There are rodeo itself, concert, livestock show and carnival all into ones. For us, it was worth it because there are entertaining and educational and supporting local business. Went and enjoyed all. We have been to big theme parks and for us the carnival is fun; full of people but shorter lines like 20-30mins max. Did not even need the fast pass on a Saturday. With tix required between 12-20 tickets, we spent about 350 tickets for family of 5 and decent 4-5 rides. The livestock is huge, we manage to cover the rabbit, egg hatching and petting zoo was too good to miss! Rodeo was 3 hours, plenty of food choice like pizza, nachos in stadium and of course Brad Paisley’s show does not disappoint. Went there weekend, before 10am left about 9pm, no problem with getting in and out of green parking lot. Not sure about other parking lots/tram/metro though. After waiting since 2020, absolutely worth going!

Do wear a pair of comfortable shoes! Lots of walking. It’s been a number of years since I was here and enjoyed both times. Loads of food, entertainment, rides, vendors etc. I am curious about one thing, who goes to this event to purchase a mattress?

We had such a great day at the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show from start to finish! We spent the early part of the day wandering around the carnival area and taking lots of photos! We spent several hours in the NRG Center watching the livestock shows and visiting all of the vendors--we did some good shopping in there!

We grabbed lunch in the food tents outside and then spent a good part of the afternoon in the wine garden sampling local wines, snacking and listening to live music--it was a pretty perfect way to spend the afternoon.

The rodeo itself was so much fun--I'd never been to one before (it literally was my first rodeo). From the opening parade to the bucking broncos to the barrel racers to the bull riders, it was all very exciting!

We didn't care much for the band that played the concert after the rodeo, so we didn't stay for that, but if we had, I can only imagine how much a live concert adds to the fun! We were exhausted after a long day anyways!

We have been to many small rodeos and bill rides, but nothing of this magnitude. The rodeo itself was so fun to watch and little did we know a man from approximately 45 minutes away from our hometown in MN was bull riding that evening! Inexpensive and well worth the money! We were in the nose bleeds, but could still see everything and the screens helped. The concert that night was Luke Bryan, who never disappoints!

The HLSR is always fun. It is crowded and filled with people from all over the world. All the animals are fun to watch. The building needed some attention. The garbage cans were overflowing. The floors were dirty, but the restrooms were fairly clean. The prices of all the food and drinks have gone really high so be prepared. The midway stays crowded. The traffic coming into and leaving NRG is awful but we parked in one of the free lots and took the bus in. The ride was 10 minutes each way. And I know the shows are wonderful. Overall it’s a great time.

The Houston livestock show and rodeo has everything from live concerts to carnival rides and a little southern charm. Not to mention some of the best food and drink you’ll ever have the pleasure of tasting. You WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

I guess the high prices are part of the Rodeo experience, eat before you come down to see the show unless you just want to spend the money , but the show is very good to see.
