The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo is back, and it’s always one of the most exciting events in the city.

This year, the Rodeo runs from February 9-26, and we’ve rounded up the best San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo deals (and related free events) in one place.

Check out our list of the free, and almost-free rodeo fun you can enjoy with your family:

$1 Day 

On February 6, San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo grounds admission is just $1.00 all day long. Hot dogs, popcorn, sodas, and rides are just $1.00 each during that time too (in the carnival area only).

$2 Days

On February 9, 16, 20, and 23, enjoy $2 admission to the fairgrounds. Plus, certain foods, drinks, and rides will be just $2 all day.

On February 25, head over to the Freeman Coliseum to witness an event deeply rooted in Mexican culture and Western history. Brought to you by the Horse Show Committee, watch majestic horses and their riders put on a show.


How to Save on Rodeo Concerts

Want to enjoy a great concert at the rodeo this year? Your best bet for seeing a concert without breaking the bank is to check SeatGeek for cheap resale tickets. At the time of this writing, some concerts are as cheap as $24!

To get the best deal, consider buying last-minute tickets through SeatGeek as sellers will often drop their prices if the event is about to start and they haven’t been able to sell them yet.
