about the RODEO The inaugural San Angelo Rodeo was held in 1934, three years after the first "fat" stock show. Rodeo in those days differs greatly from what it is today, but one truth holds true: San Angelo hosts a rodeo.
Currently held in the Foster Communications Coliseum on the San Angelo Fairgrounds, the San Angelo Rodeo Committee is proud to offer attendees on of the best true rodeos spectators can find today. San Angelo prides itself on offering a quality event from contestants, to stock, to production, and so on. Sure there are some lights and smoke to make the event a true production, but what we offer is a rodeo.
Today, the San Angelo Rodeo is a PRCA and WPRA sanctioned event open to cowboys and cowgirls across the world that are members or permit holders of their respective organizations. What does it mean that we allow permit holders to participate? it means that great cowboys looking to get their first big win get that opportunity right here, while many other rodeos only take the top end cowboys in the world standings. Everyone starts somewhere, so why not San Angelo?
The rodeo features rough stock events such as bull riding, saddle bronc riding, and bareback riding, as well as timed events like team roping, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, and women's barrel racing.
Another unique feature of San Angelo is our crowd. West Texans love rodeo as much if not more, than any other group of people, and they know what a good rodeo is. This is one of the only, if not only, location in the world that tie-down ropers get a louder cheer from the crowd than a bull rider. The fan base truly understands the work cowboys and cowgirls put into this career, and stand behind them completely.
