If you’ve been in Houston for a bit then you know what the end of February means to Houstonians—RODEO. Yes, Houston is the only city where the Houston Livestock Show isn’t even referred to by it’s “proper” name, it’s just—RODEO.
With bragging rights as the largest livestock exhibition in the world, The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo opens today and embraces the concept of everything being bigger in Texas to an extreme level. With attendance averaging over 2.5 million people,it is without a doubt the king of events each year for Houston residents and even attracts visitors from around the world.
Why Is Rodeo Houston So Popular?
Rodeo Houston is wildly popular because it offers unique events for all kinds of interests even though the event is centered around livestock and rodeo activities. In fact, our Houston Limo service stays maxed out on bookings for the entire duration of the Rodeo due to the sheer massiveness of attendees and very limited parking. The event literally has more attendees that the population of Houston itself!
In order to bring in crowds of this proportion, there has to be pretty much something to attract everyone right? You can bet your boots there is, just check out all that Rodeo Houston has to offer and how booking your transportation from Excelsior can make your visit to the Rodeo, easy, convenient, and most of all fun-filled and safe!
World Class Concerts
No one puts on a rodeo likeHouston does. With the rodeo arena located inside NRG arena, home of the Houston Texans, you know the competition is going to be fierce. But once the riding is done, the calves have been roped and the bulls have retired to their plush stalls—cowboys and rodeo attendees like to party too!
Rodeo Houston concerts are unique in that every artist uses the same universal stage setup that is unique to the rodeo. Offering a stage that rotates 360° and glides across the rodeo floor with state-of-the-art technology and lighting, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Past notable performers include Elvis Presley, Reba Mcentire, Usher, Black Eyed Peas, Bon Jovi, and of course—Beyoncé, there really is a show to attract all tastes.
This year promises no less than the best variety and talent in music with the likes of Zedd for the EDM fans, Prince Royce and Los Tigres Del Norte for Latin and Tejano fans, The Troubadour George Strait for Texas Country purists and just for kicks,they threw in some Cardi B, Okuurrrt? Seriously though, if you can’t find something to tickle your ears in this amazing lineup, we don’t know what to tell you.

So What Could Be Bad About Going To Rodeo Houston?
With Rodeo Houston being so popular, one might wonder if there is any downside to attending Rodeo Houston. That’s a very valid question and to be honest, with any large event like this there can be some downsides such as:
- Limited hotel availability
- Lots of traffic jams near the event
- Increased wait times in local restaurants
- Public transportation congestion
The Parking Is Horrible!
The biggest pet peeve of Rodeo Houston that we hear every year from our Houston Limo service passengers—Parking shortages!
Yes, parking can be downright atrocious for Rodeo. If you are lucky to even find a spot, you might find that it’s over a mile away from the gates which can be tiresome after walking all day and if leaving at night, might even pose a safety risk.
That is why our business is booked solid throughout Rodeo Houston. People find it much more convenient, safe, and comfortable to arrive in style at the entrance without having to park their car in some remote lot and feel uneasy about walking that far at night.
