DENVER, CO. – After cancellations in 2020 and 2021, the stars of rodeo return to Denver for the ultimate pro rodeo competition, Rodeo All-Star (RAS), on April 15 & 16. This year’s Rodeo All-Star Concert, presented by Mountain Dew, features country music singer and songwriter Wade Bowen. Fans with a Friday Rodeo Semi-Final 1 ticket will enjoy the country concert for free and the rodeo after-party. Saturday includes Lunch with Champions, afternoon Rodeo Semi-Final 2, and Saturday night Rodeo Finals with rodeo after-party.
Rodeo All-Star attracts top rodeo athletes worldwide and includes nine pro rodeo associations. Participating athletes represent the PRCA (Pro Rodeo Association), WPRCA (Women’s Pro Rodeo Association), CPRA (Pro Rodeo Canada Association), PBR (Pro Bull Riders), INFR (Indian National Finals Rodeo), and more, all in Denver to compete at Rodeo All-Star. Visit RAS meet the associations for more information.
Established in 2013 as the all-star event for rodeo athletes, the weekend includes three professional rodeo performances jam-packed with bronc riding, barrel racing, bull riding, mutton bustin’, and making the first-time Denver debut, women’s breakaway roping. Breakaway roping is the fastest event in rodeo, with times as quick as 1.9 seconds. Like other roping events, it is the skill of horse and rider. The roping skills are precise, and once the animal is roped, the horse stops, the rope breaks away from the saddle horn, and the clock stops. For more information on breakaway roping and other rodeo events, please visit RAS rodeo events.
Before each rodeo performance is the new RAS mutton bustin’ qualifier competition. The NW Event Center doors will open early for fans and families to cheer on 30 kids as they grab the sheep by the wool and hold on to qualify for a spot in RAS Mutton Bustin’ Sheep Stampede in each rodeo performance.
Tickets to Rodeo All-Star Weekend start at just $29 and are on sale now at rodeoallstar.com, the National Western Box Office, or by phone at 1- 888-551-5004.
