 San Angelo Coliseum hosts a wide range of events, from rodeos and indoor football to concerts and stage shows to trade shows and banquets. While the fairgrounds plays host to a number of livestock shows and other events, the 1st Community Credit Union Spur Arena is one of the premiere horse venues in the nation, playing host to scores of cutting horse, riding and roping events.

The fairgrounds complex regularly hosts major rodeos and stock shows‚ and the new Spur Arena brings state-of-the-art facilities to those events.

The city was also able to make improvements to the San Angelo Coliseum‚ a multipurpose venue built in the 1950s. With the success of the 1999 sales tax‚ voters approved a second refer endum in 2004‚ with a 20-year sunset.

Additional work has also been done at the fairgrounds‚ adding two new livestock buildings and expanded parking to further complement the arena complex. The facility is now ranked fifth in the nation on the professional rodeo circuit.
