International Days

Feb. 27 – March 5

While the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ is deeply rooted in Texas, its reach ignores borders and transcends oceans to bring the excitement of the Rodeo to livestock producers worldwide.

In recognition of global interest, the Rodeo annually designates a series of International Days to express hospitality to the Rodeo’s foreign guests. During this time, volunteers staff the International Room to help welcome and inform visitors. Professional interpreters are available and particular assistance is given to foreign buyers at the livestock auctions.
