Rodeo Corpus Christi TicketsRodeo Corpus Christi has been entertaining cowboys and cowgirls of all ages for over 20 years. It all takes place at the American Bank Center Arena and there are many rodeo events to take in. There will be mutton busting, which is when children ages 5 and up try to stay on the back of a sheep for six seconds. Another youth-driven event is the calf scramble, where youngsters chase around some calves in a pen, ultimately trying to rope one and drag it to the middle of the arena. You are also going to see rodeo clowns, bareback riding, barrel racing and the extremely popular bull-riding competition. Add to the mix the chance to meet some of these entertainers in person (as well as some live music from top national acts) and you have an event for the whole family. Get your tickets right here at StubHub.
How does my child take place in the mutton busting at Rodeo Corpus Christi?If you want your little one to take part in mutton busting, you need to first be aware of the requirements. A rider must be at least five years old, weigh less than 55 pounds, and wear a protective helmet and vest. Scoring is done for the performance of the rider as well as the animal, just like in the big leagues. If registration does not happen in time for riding in the arena, there is always the option of mutton riding in the Kids Corral Interactive Zone.
What is BBQ on the Bay?BBQ on the Bay is an annual BBQ competition that takes place during Corpus Christi Rodeo. It can be a team-building exercise for businesses and corporations as well as a chance to engage with the community. Prizes are given to not only the best BBQ but also for raising the most money towards the Buccaneer Commission Scholarship Fund.
Who steer wrestling at the 2019 Rodeo Corpus Christi?Steer wrestler Laine Herl took home the biggest prize of his career so far by winning at 2019's Rodeo Corpus Christi. He won his first round in 3.6 seconds, tied for fourth with world champion Tyler Waguespack in the second, and did a third round in 4.4 seconds to claim the title.
What is the capacity of the American Bank Center?The American Bank Center is a 10,000-seat indoor arena that is designed for professional and amateur rodeo events, concerts, sporting events and more. For rodeos, seating is limited to 7,728. The arena has a club level and VIP booths.
What is a new attraction at Rodeo Corpus Christi?New to Rodeo Corpus Christi is the Treasure Island Shopping Experience. Here you will find a select and well-curated collection of vendors that reflect the Rodeo Corpus Christi experience. It gives rodeo fans a chance to take home an added little reminder of the fun day they had.
What are the options for live music at Rodeo Corpus Christi?After two hours of rodeo action, music fans can catch live national recording artists as part of their rodeo experience. You don't even have to leave your seat since the tunes start shortly after all the bucking and barreling ends. There is a different Main Stage performer each night of the rodeo, so if you come to the rodeo more than once you get a different show each time. Before and after the Main Stage concert, you will find local bands performing at the Buckin' Marlin Stage, which is just outside of the American Bank Center arena and steps away from the Corpus Christi Bay on Resaca Street. The music is totally free and there is even a jalapeno-eating contest that takes place near the stage.
