A PRCA-sanctioned rodeo series, every Friday and Saturday from June 15th through August 18th, with a special performance on July 4th at 6:30 pm followed by a fireworks display.
The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series is the most successful weekly rodeo in the country. While the roots of rodeo in this modest little Northwestern Colorado ranch town/world class ski resort trace back over 100 years, the humble beginnings of the weekly rodeo were known in the mid 1970s as the "Friday Night Jackpot." Contestants gathered once a week to compete for their accumulated entry fees.
Gates open at 5:30 pm, the BBQ starts at 6:00 p.m. and runs until 9:30 p.m. Pre-Rodeo entertainment appears on the entertainment stage from 6:15 p.m. until 7:15 p.m. The Rodeo begins at 7:30 pm.
