San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo (San Angelo)
The San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association touches the lives of almost
everyone in San Angelo and the surrounding area. The economic benefits are substantial
as the Stock Show and Rodeo put more than $6 million into the local economy,
and the Roping Fiesta has almost as much impact. Association events and related
activities attract close to 100,000 people during the year.
The San Angelo Fat Stock Show Association originated in 1931 because civic
leaders believed in San Angelo as the center of the livestock industry in West
Texas. WTU Retail Energy is proud to sponsor the San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo
and the Santa Fe Trail Ride. Check out the latest Rodeo events news at the
San Angelo Rodeo website.
Western Heritage (Abilene)
In 1985, a few local cowboys formed teams to compete in authentic ranch activities
that involved a scoring system used to determine who the best working ranch
was. It was an event that not only challenged the participants but it drew a
crowd and established a way to support a local charity. The beneficiaries today
are the Expo Center of Taylor County and the Cancer Services Network.
WTU is proud to be part of Western Heritage Classic-recognized as the “most
unique event in Texas”.
