Adventures at the Houston Rodeo with Andeana Hats

We finally made it over to Texas with Andeana Hats! We know Houston knows a good hat, so we made sure to bring all of our best-sellers to our pop-up that we had at the Trailblazer's Luncheon. It was our first time here, so we mostly just scouted around, enjoyed the rodeo, met amazing people and even made it on the local channel 2 news. We promise the next time we're in town, we'll host a pop-up open to the public where we can get to know everyone better. Let's take a look at our adventures in Houston!

What is the Houston Rodeo?

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, commonly known as the Houston Rodeo, is one of the largest and most prestigious livestock exhibitions and rodeo events in the world. It's held annually in Houston, Texas, typically spanning about three weeks from late February to early March. The event has a rich history that dates back to 1932, showcasing Texas's agricultural, livestock, and Western heritage.
The Houston Rodeo features a wide array of activities and attractions, including:
Rodeo Competitions: Professional cowboys and cowgirls compete in traditional rodeo events such as bull riding, barrel racing, team roping, and more, vying for top honors and prize money.

Livestock Show: Exhibitors from across the nation bring various types of livestock and other animals to compete in different categories. It's an educational opportunity for the public to learn about agricultural practices.

Concerts: Each night, the rodeo is followed by a concert featuring top artists from various genres, including country, pop, rock, and Latin music, attracting massive audiences.

Carnival: The event includes a large carnival with rides, games, and food, offering fun for all ages.

Educational Exhibits and Activities: There are numerous educational exhibits and presentations on agriculture, wildlife, and more, aimed at promoting awareness and understanding among attendees.

Shopping and Food: Vendors offer a wide range of products from Western apparel and artwork to farm equipment. The food options include traditional Texas barbecue, Tex-Mex, and other culinary delights.

The Houston Rodeo is not only a celebration of Western culture and livestock exhibition but also serves a philanthropic purpose. It raises millions of dollars in scholarships, grants, and educational programs for young people in Texas. Over the years, it has grown into a major cultural and entertainment event, drawing visitors from all over the world.

What were we doing in Houston with Andeana Hats? 

We were so lucky to participate in the Trailblazer's Luncheon Market this year! The Trailblazer's Luncheon is an event associated with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, designed to honor and recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the rodeo or the agricultural industry. This luncheon is one of several events organized around the rodeo season to celebrate the heritage, culture, and community spirit that the rodeo promotes. We were alongside other wonderful vendors celebrating these important leaders in Houston! 


We explored the city and got to know the city's western roots. We absolutely loved all of the hats and rodeo fashion inspiration. We couldn't get enough of the cowboy boots! While this visit was short, we are ready to start participating in more pop-ups in Houston. We'd love to do a hat bar where you can build your own Andeana Hat and accessorize it! Keep your eye on our Markets Page to stay up-to-date on where we're popping up next, or let us know where are next pop-up should be! See you soon, Houston!
