The mission of the Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show & Rodeo is to educate our local youth while promoting agriculture. We provide scholarships and showmanship award money to help provide financial assistance to students who have proven academic and leadership abilities, good citizenship and financial needs. In a never-ending quest for new and innovative ways to raise funds for scholarships and the Sale of Champions, the RGVLS Redfish Rodeo was born. The Fourth Annual RGVLS Redfish Rodeo was held June 15-16, 2018 at the Port Isabel Event & Cultural Center. Friday evening, all of the teams, the 100 volunteers, along with representatives from the 30 sponsors were treated to dinner along with a silent auction and prize raffles. On Saturday, over 65 boats and a total of 260 anglers from all walks of life, some as young as four years old, competed for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. In all, through team entry fees, sponsor dollars, and raffle ticket sales, a total of over $47,000.00 was raised. Building on the overwhelming success of the first annual Redfish Rodeo, the fifth tournament is scheduled for June 28-29, 2019 at the SPI Convention Center. We anticipate double the number of teams, sponsors, volunteers, and fishermen for this year’s event. Support the youth of South Texas at the 5th Annual RGVLS Redfish Rodeo…FISH ON!
