More than 35,000 individuals serving on 110 different committees form the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ volunteer corps and are responsible for helping maintain its charitable purpose year after year.
With more than 2.1 million total hours of service amongst them, Rodeo volunteers know their dedication to this organization goes beyond a time commitment — it’s a way of life.
Since 1932, the Rodeo has made a $575 million impact on the youth of Texas, a feat that could not have been done without the passion of its volunteer network.
Only with your help
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo would not be the successful organization it is today without the vision, dedication and hard work of its volunteers.
What began as a small group of people with a dream has developed into nearly a month-long event supported by the efforts of more than 35,000 people.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo promotes agriculture by hosting an annual, family-friendly experience that educates and entertains the public, supports Texas youth, showcases Western heritage and provides year-round educational support within the community.
