About this Event

A family-friendly event, Rodeo Austin offers something for everyone. Open March 14-28, 2020, the Fairgrounds offers Austin's largest carnival, shopping, food and a variety of shows and special attractions. Fairgrounds admission grants access to the fun and educational activities listed below. Carnival rides, fair food, and livestock attractions deliver gritty fun!

Fairgrounds open at 10:00 a.m. daily. Parking is $15 and, new for 2020, may be purchased online. Fairgrounds admission tickets do not include carnival or Rodeo & Concert admission.

DEALS AND DISCOUNTS

Many of our deals are available for purchase online, but there are a few deals available for purchase at the gate only. For seniors age 60 and better OR active/retired military personnel OR first responders, $8 admission is reduced to $5 every day. Must be purchased at the gate with valid ID, not available online.

CARNIVAL

Rodeo Austin is proud to host Austin's largest carnival. The carnival offers more than 60 rides and games for the whole family. Rides and games can be purchased on an individual basis. Unlimited ride wristbands allow you to ride all day for one price. New for 2020, unlimited ride wristbands tickets can be purchased online!

For your safety, each carnival ride has height restrictions and rides are subject to closure due to weather. Rides and games range from $2 - $10 each, with most rides being $3 - $4 each. There are a limited number of rides that are suitable for younger children, therefore, an unlimited ride wristband may not be a large value for children 36” and smaller. Carnival wristbands do not include the thrill ride Power. Wristbands are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Guests must have a fairgrounds or rodeo & concert admission ticket to gain access to the carnival.

SHOPPING

From clothes to jewelry and everything in between – Rodeo Austin has over 70 commercial vendors to meet any shopper’s dream! Our General Store opens at 10:00 a.m. and closes at 8:00 p.m. daily with extended hours through 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Rodeo Drive, which offers chic fashions ranging from cowboy boots to jewelry, will fulfill all your rodeo and concert gear needs.
