KHOU & CultureMap
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is about more than roping, riding, concert-going and overindulging on fried treats. The three-and-a-half-week-long event also happens to be one of the biggest philanthropic drives of the year (one that has raised more than $300 million in scholarships) — and essentially a nonstop party.
So where should you go to see and be seen during this 83rd annual rodeo? CultureMap editor at large Shelby Hodge had the scoop on Great Day Houston.
Whether you prefer a low-key evening amid the smoke at the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, a high-class Rodeo Uncorked! wine dinner or a Bloody Mary-fueled breakfast before a Steer Auction, Shelby's got you covered.
