Rock the Rodeo!

Named the Outstanding Small Rodeo in the nation four years in a row, the Annual Rooftop Rodeo features Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) cowboys competing in saddle bronco riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, bareback bronco riding, barrel racing and bull riding nightly. Daily kids events, fun, food, and general excitement fill the week with a one-of-a-kind Rodeo experience.

 

Everyone loves the popular Behind the Chutes Tour offered daily at 4:30p from Tuesday, July 7 through Sunday July 12. Advance tickets are highly recommended.  Kids can Mutton Bust each evening at 8:30p after the nightly Rooftop Rodeo Performances which begin at 7:30p.  Tuesday night Mutton Bustin’ is dedicated to Rocky’s 100th Celebration.  New this year for kids, at 9pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the Cash Catch features young contestants chasing loose sheep to recover a $5 bill attached to the wool on its back.  Sign up for the same night’s Cash Catch at the Mutton Bustin’ booth  at the spectator gate. Cash Catch is limited to the first 100 visitors to register by 7pm.

 

Special events include “Dress Like a Rodeo Clown” night on Thursday night from 6p-7p.  This is a non-judged just for fun event for kids 5-11. The first 24 clowns enjoy an arena parade, photo ops, and a dip into the “treasure chest” for a special prize.

 

Friday, July 10 is Purple Night. The Man Up Crusade chose professional rodeo and the PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) to help spread the word and prevent domestic and teen dating violence.

 

On Saturday, July 11 Tough Enough to Wear Pink invites everyone – cowboys and girls alike, volunteers, spectators, and performers to wear pink to Saturday night’s Rooftop Rodeo Performance.

 

The Country Music Project, with its mix of male and female four-part vocals and instrumentation that includes acoustic, electric, and steel guitars, mandolin and banjo will keep you dancing all night at the Queen’s Dance held on both Saturday and Sunday, July 11 and 12, from 9:30p.
