COVID SAFETY UPDATE
In a season of great uncertainty, Rodeo Austin continues to keep Texas youth at the forefront of everything we do. Given the on-going circumstances of the pandemic, including the unavailability of portions of the Travis County Expo Center, the decision has been made to cancel the ProRodeo, Carnival, Fair and BBQ Austin events this March.
We do plan to host private youth competitions this March. This will include the Junior Livestock Show, Ag Mechanics Competition, Ultimate Scramble Championship and the Youth Auction. Thank you for your continued support!STAY UP-TO-DATE

RODEO AUSTIN CHARITY MISSION
We are Rodeo Austin, a not-for-profit that provides real experiences and gritty fun to raise millions for Texas kids. Since 1938, we’ve been a mission with a rodeo that has brought heritage and entertainment to our community. Our mission is to grow the next generation … it’s in our roots! Learn more about our Scholarship Program, or how to Donate.
Scholarship Recipients are selected based on financial need, academic achievement and community involvement. Rodeo Austin establishes the selection criteria, then the partnering educational institutions make the specific student selections each year. To be considered for a Rodeo Austin Scholarship, you must be attending one of the partnering colleges or universities or have participated in 4-H or FFA programs. Learn more about how to apply for a scholarship here.
As a charitable organization, we rely on our more than 1,000 volunteers to make our event a success! The volunteers participate in more than 25 committees to administer our educational programs and plan annual events. Learn more about Volunteering here.
