Economic Impact on Houston

The Houston Rodeo’s influence extends far beyond the excitement of the arena. This year, the event attracted 2.55 million attendees, up from 2.51 million in 2019, making it one of the largest gatherings in the city. The influx of visitors had a ripple effect across various sectors, particularly benefiting local hotels. During the Rodeo, more than $95 million was spent on lodging alone, significantly boosting the local hospitality industry.

The economic benefits also touched the retail and food service sectors. Local restaurants and shops saw increased foot traffic and sales, driven by the influx of visitors attending the event. This surge in economic activity is crucial for small businesses and contributes to the overall vibrancy of the local economy.

Moreover, the Rodeo supported significant employment. More than 3,500 jobs were directly tied to the event, with several thousand more indirectly supported by the Rodeo’s activities. These jobs spanned various industries, including hospitality, retail, and transportation, underscoring the Rodeo’s role as a critical economic driver for Houston.
