77th Annual Stonyford Rodeo

Our 77th year for Stonyford's annual PRCA rodeo will be a 3-day event: Friday, May 1 and Saturday May 2, 2020 will be PRCA events and Sunday May 3, 2020 will be an amateur event. It's three days of rodeo excitement. The first day will be on Friday, May 1, at 5 p.m. and will be all PRCA events. The second day is on Saturday May 2, 2019 and will be both PRCA and amateur events. The day begins with breakfast, followed by a parade through town, then the rodeo at 1:00 p.m. The third day's amateur events begin at noon on Sunday, May 3, 2019.

We have added a new event to our Friday and Saturday Performance: WPRA Breakaway Roping. Also, we are changing Mutton Bustin' to Friday and Saturday,  and the Hyde Race has been added to the Sunday Amateur events. 

All tickets are general admission (except VIP top row and Box Seats tickets). General Admission seating is first-come, first-serve. So, you will need to get to the area early to get the seats that you want. Tickets for Sunday's amateur events will be only be available at the gate.
