The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ provides special tours for schools, special groups and organizations during the annual event. Check out these tour options to get a first-hand agricultural experience at the world's largest livestock show and rodeo. 

School Tours & Field Trips

  • School Tour – a 45 minute scheduled, guided tour through Agventure in NRG Center
  • Field Trip – completely self-guided and at your own time and pace

Both School Tours and Field Trips may visit the rest of the Rodeo grounds, including Fun on the Farm and The Junction, on their own. Access to NRG Stadium, including the rodeo and concert, is not included for either type. In February, registered groups will receive a packet describing the exhibits and attractions in Agventure and The Junction. The packet will include event times and any additional costs.


Complimentary admission tickets to the Houston Livestock Show are provided for school children and a limited number of chaperones. To ensure as many children as possible are able to participate, we limit the number of complimentary adult tickets to an adult to children ratio of 1:8. If your group requires more than the recommended adults, you may purchase general admission tickets at the gate for $20.


Parking passes are provided for official school buses only. Private cars and other vehicles may park in the Yellow Lot off Main Street. The fee to park in the Yellow Lot is $25 per car; free tram service is available from the Yellow Lot to the NRG Park entrance. Parking also may be purchased at various other locations.
