SAN ANTONIO — If it has to do with the Lone Star State, you’ll find it at the Texas Experience pavilion during the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, said officials from the local offices of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and Texas Department of Agriculture, the presenting agencies.

The 20,000-square-foot enclosed pavilion, located within the Family Fair portion of the show grounds near the Freeman Coliseum, will be open each day from Feb. 3-20. Its displays will introduce visitors to many of the items grown, produced or manufactured in Texas. They also show some of the state’s flora and fauna and provide information on topics of statewide and broader interest.

“The Texas Experience pavilion always has attractive, high-quality exhibits,” said Ellen Andrus, exhibit director for the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. “Every year we get a lot of positive feedback from people who have visited the pavilion, seen what it offers, sampled the food and taken advantage of its many fun and educational exhibits.

“TDA and AgriLife Extension have partnered on the pavilion for several years, and each year it keeps getting better.”

Site counts from the 2010 Texas Experience pavilion showed more than 140,000 visitors came through the building over the 18-day run of the stock show and rodeo show, which brought in more than 1.3 million people from Texas and the rest of the U.S., as well as several other countries worldwide.
