About Youth Day

Hosted by the School Tours Committee of the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, Youth Day is an entire day during the San Antonio Rodeo dedicated to Youth! During this day, 4-H, FFA, & FCCLA members from across Texas gather together to showcase their organizations, activities, & project work. These members set up exhibits and interactive activity booths for young visitors attending the Stock Show & Rodeo. Children are treated to arts and crafts, games, demonstrations, sweet treats, and educational activities. All the fun of Youth Day is included with your rodeo or grounds ticket.

The School Tours Committee also hosts a photography contest as part of the Youth Day activities. Entries from the contest are on display in the School Tours tent located in Family Fair from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The Photography Contest Awards Ceremony will be held in the School Tours tent also.

Country Couture Youth Fashion Show 
The purpose of this fashion show is to give our youth an opportunity to show their talents and abilities. This is not a judged competition; it is simply a time when young people can show off a garment that they have made. The garment(s) can be created from a purchased pattern, an original design or a redesign of an existing garment.
