The 2018 Tucson Rodeo is February 17-25 at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds, 4823 S. 6th Ave. See directions.

Current and former Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) world champions are featured in each Tucson Rodeo. The entry list for Tucson could be the Whos Who of pro rodeo, boasts Gary Williams, general manager of the Tucson Rodeo. In addition to the caliber of competition and the prize money, cowboys look forward to Tucson because the fans are great and the sky is blue. This is the first major outdoor rodeo of the year, so theyre ready for sunshine, fresh air and 11,000 fans each day cheering them on, adds Williams.

The Tucson Rodeo Parade is billed as the worlds longest non-motorized parade. This two-hour spectacle features western-themed floats and buggies, historic horse-drawn coaches, festive Mexican folk dancers, marching bands and outfitted riders. An estimated 200,000 spectators view the parade each year.

The Tucson Rodeo enlists over 650 contestants from the United States and Canada competing for more than $460,000 in prize money. The Tucson Rodeo, the first major outdoor event on the PRCA schedule, gives visitors an opportunity to see real-life cowboys and cowgirls display their ability in the only sport in the world developed from work skills.

Rodeo events include bull riding, bareback and saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, team roping and womens barrel racing. Also featured each day are kids events -- Dodge Mutton Bustin, when four-to six-year-olds test their riding skills on sheep, and the Justin Junior Rodeo for young cowpokes ages 7-12.
