HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Rodeo fans, get ready to dust off your boots for next year's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo!

On Wednesday, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo announced the schedule for the 2022 pre-rodeo events. These include Rodeo Roundup and Go Texan Day, the World's Championship BBQ contest, trail rides and even the downtown parade.

In celebration of its 90th anniversary, the 2022 Rodeo is scheduled for Feb. 28 through March 20.

Here's what the committee has planned:

  • Feb. 24-26: World's Championship BBQ Contest
  • Feb. 25: Rodeo Roundup and Go Texan Day and Trail Rides
  • Feb. 26: Downtown Rodeo Parade and Rodeo Run
