After shutting down amid regional coronavirus concerns, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo issued guidelines on 2020 ticket options March 12.

According to Rodeo officials, there have been many inquiries about ways to support the annual event, which was supposed to run from March 3-22 but was cut short March 11. In response to this outreach, ticket holders will have the option to donate the money spent on tickets to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, mitigating the burden of shutting down early, according to a release.

For holders of 2020 season tickets, the balance can be donated or roll over for the 2021 Rodeo season, or a refund can be requested.

For holders of individual tickets, options include donating or requesting a refund. Those who have purchased carnival tickets or food cards can request a refund or use the tickets at next year's Rodeo.

Season ticketholders who choose to rollover their balance do not need to take any action. However, for holders of season or individual tickets wanting to request a refund, be on the lookout for an email early next week to choose this option. Refunds are estimated to be complete by April 30, according to the release.


If you purchased resale tickets through Rodeo Houston, refunds will be automatically processed by April 30, 2020. If you purchased tickets through a secondary ticket provider, such as VividSeats, StubHub, SeatGeek or Ticketmaster, please contact those sites directly for refund information, the Rodeo website states.

Houstonians and other supporters of the Houston Rodeo have the opportunity to donate to the various vendors that participate in the annual event as well as to the Rodeo's educational fund.
