One of the biggest annual events in San Antonio, Texas has added some star-studded names to its concert lineup. The 2017 San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo (also known as the San Antonio Livestock Exposition) has announced that Willie Nelson, Little Big Town, Sam Hunt, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young and many more will be performing over a two-week period.
The Stock Show and Rodeo is fueled by donor and community support. The event is run by volunteers and was founded as a way to promote agriculture education in the state. They raise millions of dollars a year which is immediately donated to the youth of Texas. The money goes toward scholarships, livestock auctions, grants and endowments.
In addition to some amazing live music and rodeo, livestock and horse competitions, there will be tons of activities for the whole family. Attendees can expect a BBQ cook-off, petting zoo, pig races, a carnival, parade, and lots of delicious food.
