Mesquite Championship Rodeo

Since Mesquite is "The Rodeo Capital of Texas" it seems only fitting to include the Mesquite Championship Rodeo in the cost of admission to the Real. Texas. Festival. Come early for the carnival and family fun and stay after the rodeo for world-class entertainment on the main stage.

And, new this year the Fort Hood Horse Cavalry will perform during the rodeo. The cavalry will perform old school mounted military cavalry drills complete with cannon, bugles, sabers, pistols and rifles.

The Mesquite Championship Rodeo will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 24 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 25. The arena is open seating. For more information about the Mesquite Championship Rodeo visit
