RODEOHOUSTON, the world’s largest livestock show, plus to make things even sweeter it benefits youth nation wide! Late last year Chris Boleman, Rodeo President and CEO shared big news via social media!

This year's events kick off February 28 and go through March 19 in Houston, Texas at NRG Stadium. For the first time in 2023, the Rodeo will host a special Opening Day celebration that represents the uniqueness and community aspect of Houston, including a performance by a local band on the Stars Over Texas Stage.

Closing out with McCollum performing on the RODEOHOUSTON stage. Special giveaways will include 10,000 custom-made Howdy bobbleheads for early arrivers that morning, beginning at 10 a.m., and a variety of activities planned throughout the day for guests of all ages, including an Opening Day Parade on the grounds of NRG Park, the rodeo's website says.

“Everyone looks forward to the upcoming Rodeo season all year long, and we hope all Rodeo fans will circle Opening Day on their 2023 calendars, as this will be a day you won’t want to miss,” said Chris Boleman, Rodeo president and CEO. “February 28 will truly be a Houston-themed celebration, as we kick off the 2023 Rodeo season with Houston’s-own country music star Parker McCollum closing out the day with another unforgettable RODEOHOUSTON performance.”

In September, it was announced that ACM winner Parker McCollum will kick off festivities on Opening Day. Last year McCollum sold out the venue for the first time and is excited to be back.
