What is Charreada – A Day in Old Mexico

Where does it take place? Is it kid-friendly? These are just a few of the questions I have received, and I wanted to provide some answers.

Admission*: $20 for adults and $5 for kids 6-12 years & it doesn't state this, but I'm guessing under 6 is free. All seats are general admission and can only be purchased at the door. *prices are subject to change

Parking: Free until it fills up then surrounding parking is $10. The Gates open at 1 PM for parking.  The event starts at 3 PM with Mariachi and Ballet.

Location: Rancho del Charro 6126 Padre Dr, San Antonio, TX 78214

Kid Friendly: Yes, seating is limited and rustic, so be flexible and ready for dust.

From Charreada:

Explore the distinctive culture that upholds deep-rooted customs, traditions, and family as a way of life. This family event features food, drink, pony rides for the kids, Ballet Folklorico performances and live Mariachi music. The Asociación de Charros de San Antonio has been carrying on the tradition of Charrera for years. Charrera originated in 19th century as a way for the landed gentry to prepare horses and riders for war, it later evolved into an equestrian competition featuring horse reining, bull riding and artistic roping skills. Today’s charros wear the traditional clothes and use horse equipment as required by the Federation of Charros in Mexico.



  • Walking around the authentic working ranch and visiting with performers
  • Arts and Crafts booths
  • Mariachis
  • Girls escaramuza
  • Try authentic foods
  • The charreada – Watch the performance of the cowboys, cowgirls, and their horses (a rodeo done old Mexico style)
  • Trade Medals and take photos

Mom Tips:

  • Wear closed-toe comfy shoes for sure, very dusty.
  • Arrive early so that you can stake a claim on seats, we never found any
  • They only close the gates once the arena is full to signify Sold Out, so get there early.
  • Pack drinks and food for kids
  • Bring hand wipes and antibacterial
  • Not wagon or stroller friendly, be prepared to stand a lot & to sit in random places

And my overall is for Fiesta's Charreada!!!!  We will definitely go back as the whole family enjoyed it.
