Rodeo Austin’s Kick Open the Chutes takes place the night before the fifteen-day fair & rodeo officially opens its gates! It is a pre-season party on the dirt! Tickets are general admission and grant guests access to select behind-the-scenes areas of the main rodeo arena, including the arena floor with live music by Josh Ward & William Beckmann. Food for purchase will be available from some of our favorite local food trucks and cash bars will be open for guests over 21 years of age. Guests will also enjoy live music from the arena floor.
