Founded in 1947, the Humble Rodeo was organized by a group made up of local businessmen, community residents, oil field workers, cattlemen, and a few cowboys. Little did they know at the time what a tradition they had begun. It was originally known as the Humble Fat Stock Show and Rodeo, with the first arena located near the corner of First Street and McKay Drive. This young organization was incorporated the next year with “a two-fold purpose: (a) to work with and assist the FFA and Vocational Agricultural Department of the Humble Schools, and (b) to advance and promote agriculture, commerce, industry, civic interests and citizenship in Humble and trade territory.” Membership quickly grew to more than 50 participants that included not only Humble residents but also members from Aldine and the surrounding countryside.
