Reno Rodeo: Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West
The herd hits town for the 102st time on June 117 at high noon, corner of Oddie Boulevard and Sutro Street, to kick start “The Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West” and finish the traditional 300-head cattle drive, a five-day wild west journey from Doyle, CA, to Reno.
A Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) sanctioned sporting event, the Reno Rodeo celebrates 102 years in 2021.
More than 140,000 rodeo fans come to “The Biggest Little City in the World” to watch 10 intense days of bull riding, cattle drives, steer wrestling, roping, barrel racing and more. The Reno Rodeo is a nationally televised sports championship that infuses the local Reno/Sparks area economy with $42 million going to hotels, casinos, restaurants and retail businesses.
Often broadcast on television via CBS Sports, Fox Sports Net, Versus, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPN Classic, the Reno Rodeo has grown into the fourth richest PRCA tour rodeo and third best among USA Today’s 10 Best Readers Choice.
In addition to watching the events, guests are invited to learn about rodeo activities through family sessions and lessons throughout the 10-day rodeo extravaganza. Go HERE for a map of the parade route, road closures, and a parade entry application.
