RodeoHouston grand marshal

Leon Coffee has been one of the most recognizable faces of RodeoHouston for the last three decades. In honor of his 30th anniversary, the legendary barrelman, who stares down bulls for a living, has been named grand marshal of the Downtown Rodeo Parade. 

Coffee, the rockstar of rodeo clowns, walks a fine line each night between danger and delight. He's the guy in the barrel who tries to distract the angry bull after a rider is bucked off. 

He's had more than his share of close calls and broken bones, but Coffee loves his job. 

"I cherish it. I cherish the days that I have left in my career," the native Texan told us back in 2013.

Coffee is a celebrity in the rodeo world, a ProRodeo Hall of Fame inductee and the PRCA Clown of the Year in 1983.

“Leon Coffee is an icon and fan-favorite of the Rodeo, with 2023 being his 30th anniversary as our barrelman and friend, it makes him the perfect candidate to lead our parade as Grand Marshal,” said Chris Boleman, Rodeo president and CEO.

The Rodeo Parade is Saturday, Feb. 25, at 10 a.m.
