Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo
Cinch World's Toughest Rodeo™ returns to Saint Paul for two thrilling shows Friday - Saturday, Jan. 25 and 26 at Xcel Energy Center starting at 7:30 p.m. each night.
Get the best seats in the house when you purchase your Gold Buckle tickets. Gold Buckle ticket holders receive a complimentary Rodeo Rowdy Rag, free program and early access to the preshow, including a special meet-and greet-with the specialty entertainers from 5:30 to 6 p.m.
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 the return of Bull Jumper Emmanuel Lataste. The Frenchman will show off his unbelievable athletic talent and nerves of steel as he takes extreme sport to another level. Bull Jumping, a sport directly linked to South Western French tradition called "Course Landaise," will include more than 15 jumps and maneuvers over a four-year-old charging Mexican fighting bull. Joining Manu will be Professional Rodeo Comedy Act of the Year John Harrison and trick and Roman rider Dusti Dickerson.

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.
