Rodeo Austin 2014 commemorates more than 75 years of the rich western heritage Texas is known for. The rodeo is more than a rodeo, though. Sure, there are cowboys roping steer, riding bareback, barrel racing and even bullfighters. However, Rodeo Austin 2014 also hosts several livestock shows, a petting zoo, a BBQ cook-off, swine pig races, Wild West Show, tours, a dog show, an amazing food court and so much more. Concerts include country music superstars like Clay Walker, Thompson Square, Chris Young, the Eli Young Band and Lee Brice, American Idol winner Scotty McCready and Country Legends like Dwight Yoakam, Loretta Lynn and Willie Nelson with many, many other talented acts performing throughout the 16 day event.
