PRCA Pro Rodeo rides back to Scottsdale’s WestWorld in March
PHOENIX — One of the state’s oldest and largest rodeos is making a return to WestWorld in Scottsdale for its 67th consecutive year, as over 20,000 people are expected to take in some Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Pro Rodeo action during the event that lasts from March 5 through March 8.
Competitions take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, while the Sunday show starts at 2 p.m. General admission tickets are $18 and $5 for children under 12 years old. Reserved box seats cost $45 for all ages. Tickets can be purchased online or by calling the box office at (480) 648-4369.
“We look forward to the Rodeo each year, adding more talent and creating a buckin’ fun weekend for all ages that you won’t forget,” Dave Alford, Rodeo Scottsdale’s General Manager, said in a press release.
Fans can witness a traditional rodeo on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as more than 500 contestants will attempt to win tens of thousands of dollars in prize money. Seven events will take place, including bronc riding, barrel racing, roping and bull riding.
Those who enjoy the thrilling action of bull riding will want to catch the all-bull riding event that kicks off the festivities on Thursday night. Some of the top riders in the country will try to stay on highly ranked bulls in what is known as the “most dangerous eight seconds in sports.”
Once the rodeo concludes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, fans can keep the party going at the Coors Hoe Down that features popular country music for all ages.
