Biggest Rodeos in The US You Can’t Miss
If you are looking for a genuine country experience, then these rodeos are a must see. At Sheplers Western Wear, we have a few recommendations.
Prescott Frontier Days
When: July 1 – 7
Where: Prescott, Arizona
About: Also known as the World’s Oldest Rodeo, Prescott Frontier Days first started in 1888. The event lasts for eight days, so there is plenty of rodeo to see when it fits your schedule. You will witness numerous events with each performance including bull riding, steer wrestling, bareback, and barrel racing.
What to Wear: Because it claims to be the oldest rodeo in the world, we suggest a more traditional country getup. Think jeans or jean shorts, traditional cowgirl boots, and a cute top for her. Think jeans, a button-down, and of course a cowboy hat. Temperature can also drop a bit at night in this area, so if you tend to get cold easily, bring a jacket or wear sleeves that can be unrolled as the night goes on.
When: September 7 – 14
Where: Pendleton, Oregon
About: The Pendleton Round-Up transforms the town into rodeo central. Not only will there be the rodeo itself, but the round-up includes a parade, live music, nightly shows, and a carnival. It is a week’s worth of fun for the whole family.
What to Wear: While thinking about rodeo outfits, you need to take in to account the weather. Because Oregon is farther north, you will want to dress a little warmer, especially if you are not used to it. We suggest a long-sleeve western shirt for him and a fringe jacket for her so you are both stylish and warm.

Where: Cody, Wyoming
