Get a true taste of the rustic American southwest at Rodeo Austin in the capital of Texas. The 15-day event covers the likes of live country music, action-packed rodeo, a family-friendly fair and juicy stock shows.
But what is a Austin-hosted event without classic Texas barbecue? BBQ Austin is a public event that features BBQ teams from across the state in an epic cookout for the title of “Grand Champion.” Make sure to show up with an empty stomach as each team provides public sampling of some of the best smoked meats on the planet.
Further entertainment will be provided in the form of thrilling country competition. Austin will host one of America’s top 10 Pro Rodeos in a two-hour showdown filled with bullfighting and the always entertaining Mutton Bustin’. Thousands of dollars will be on the line as competitors attempt to be the first to catch calves in the annual Ultimate Scramble Championship.
Additionally, young cowboys and cowgirls can express their creative side with western art during the Youth Art Show. Students from grades 9-12 can enter in the areas of photography, traditional, digital and sculpture 3D artwork.
