Comedy barrelman JJ Harrison will keep fans on the edge of their seats, and Loop Rawlins, award-winning Western entertainer extraordinaire, has worked coast-to-coast bringing the Wild West up close and personal.
Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo has doubled up on pre-show fan fun as the rodeo opens at 6 p.m. each night for a free (with ticket) pre-show event "down on the dirt." Come early for pony rides, meet the cowboys, hop in the clown’s barrel, take a seat in the bucking chutes on our live photo bulls Sonny and Silver Dollar, or get up close and personal on a behind-the-chutes tour.
