Every year the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association works hard to bring the best attractions to the fairgrounds during the annual event for guests of all ages. We want people to experience the western way of life while on the fairgrounds and gain a knowledge and appreciation for agriculture.
Every kid and kid at heart looks forward to the carnival coming to town every year and the Bill Hames Show promises to bring the best of rides for our spectators! And, it wouldn't be much a rodeo without the mechanical bull that is a crowd favorite throughout the evening hours with young and old alike showing off to their friends they have the stuff cowboys are made of. If you are searching for more of an adrenaline rush than the mechanical bull can provide, then it is probably the Sling Shot that will interest you. Get ready to be launched into the sky and if you are brave enough to keep your eyes open you can get quite a view at the top!
Maybe the kids are looking for something to keep them entertained, and we have a diverse group of activities for them as well. The Rock Wall is always a favorite as are the jumping bungees for kids of all ages. Be sure you check out the Petting Zoo and TXP Kid's Korral while on the Fairgrounds to learn more about the animals featured on the fairgrounds and get up close and personal with them. Kid's can even feed the animals! Gator the Clown is up to his usual antics handing out ballon animals and flowers or riding around on the Concho Express Train! Oscar the Robot is usually strolling around the grounds in the evenings striking up conversations with the young guests too!
The White Tigers and Lions are extremely unique and something that no one will want to miss. They are extremely rare and endangered. Unless you are in Vegas, there is slim chance of getting the opportunity to see one!
For the moms and dads, you will not want to miss the opportunity to stroll through the Wells Fargo Pavilion and check out the exhibits. With everything from western wear and home decor to chocolate candies and boot cleaner there is bound to be something for everyone!
