Rodeo Parade Route

Get your Rodeo Tickets today for the best seats.

Every year thousands of Texans and visitors line the downtown streets of the fourth largest city to watch hundreds of trail riders and decorated floats follow their yearly route to kick off the start of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.    This is a great family event you would not want to miss.  There are hundreds of beautiful horses that your children and grandchildren would love too see.  Many of the trail riders have been riding weeks in the hot, cold, wind, and rain to be a part of this special event.  Come out and show your support to our Texas Cowboys and Cowgirls.  They really do appreciate seeing all of you line the streets welcoming them home after a long ride.

If you are driving around the loop or downtown the day before the Houston Rodeo parade, you will probably see the riders making their way to Memorial Park.  Please drive cautiously around the riders and their horses.  We want to keep our cowboys and cowgirls safe.
