Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo™ returns to Saint Paul for two thrilling shows Friday - Saturday, January 25 and 26 at Xcel Energy Center starting at 7:30 p.m. each night.
The popular "Party on the Dirt," featuring Travis Denning, will take place following Saturday night's rodeo action. K102 contest winners get access to the dirt dance, but all rodeo fans are welcome to stay and enjoy the live entertainment.
In 2019, Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo will be the first-ever "special events tour" to be sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. The toughest cowboy in Saint Paul will have the opportunity to compete at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas for the World Champion title.
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo showcases champion cowboys from around the United States competing in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding or bull riding, while the ladies will be vying for the championship title in barrel racing. The top two in each event will return for a second time to go head-to-head to determine the night's champion.
Before the rodeo each night beginning at 6 p.m., fans are invited to come early and partake in the interactive activities for all ages including pony rides, all access meet-and-greets with cowboys and entertainers, hopping in the clown's barrel for photos, sitting on Silver Dollar the LIVE bull in the bucking chutes, or getting up close and personal with the Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo animal superstars.
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo will feature Whiplash The Cowboy Monkey, Professional Rodeo Comedy Act of the Year John Harrison, and trick and Roman rider Dusti Dickerson.

To provide a safer environment and significantly expedite guest entry into the arena, Xcel Energy Center encourages you to not bring a bag to the event or to limit the size of the bag that you bring. Should you choose to bring a bag, we encourage using a clear tote (plastic, vinyl or PVC) that does not exceed 12" x 6" x 12" or a maximum one gallon size plastic storage bag. Small bags or clutch purses no larger than 5" x 8" are permitted. Oversized bags and backpacks are prohibited.
Pro tip for faster mobile entry: Add your tickets to your phone's "wallet" and have a fully charged battery.
Mobile tickets are like an airline boarding pass which can be accessed with a smartphone via the Ticketmaster app or mobile site in a QR code format and scanned at the gate for entry.
Once you are within 48 hours of your event, log on to your Ticketmaster account and add the mobile tickets to your Apple Wallet/Google Wallet app. Once you have added to the app, your QR code will be accessible for entry. This bypasses the need for Wi-Fi or cellular data at the gates.
Guests are reminded to fully charge their smartphones prior to arriving at the venue in order to access mobile tickets. Click here for more information.
