Cave Creek Rodeo Days is gearing up for the 42nd annual PRCA pro rodeo event! We have been PRCA sanctioned since 1977 featuring all events (bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, team roping, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, barrel racing and bull riding). Our rodeo event begins the week before our PRCA performances with a Parade, Mutton Bustin' and Rodeo Kick-off Dance. This is followed by an annual golf tournament currently being held at Tatum Ranch Golf Course the Monday before the first PRCA performance. This year our Fans enjoyed new grandstands complements of the Town of Cave Creek and its dedication to keeping the western lifestyle and its history alive.
Our rodeo offers three performances each year. Two are evening performances with our gates opening at 5:00 PM so the Fans can come out grab a bite of food and shop our vendor area. We have some fantastic vendors from all over the west. The PRCA performance begins promptly at 7:30 PM on both Friday and Saturday evening. Sunday Fans enjoy our afternoon performance with the gates opening at 11:30 AM giving Fans one last chance to shop the vendors and get that special item not found in the store. The PRCA performance began at 2:00 PM on Sunday. Post Rodeo we always have an event in the Town of Cave Creek. This year we had David Lee Murphy on stage at Harold’s Corral Friday night and on Saturday the Official Rodeo Dance was held at the same venue with multiple bands.
Our mission not only includes raising funds to assist with the maintenance, repair and enhancement of the Cave Creek Memorial Arena but continues the traditions created by our western heritage. We support scholarship avenues, exposing our heritage to youth and continue the tradition of giving back to local community and state charitable causes, through the wonderful exciting sport of a PRCA professional rodeo.
In closing I would like to thank all our VOLUNTEERS! These dedicated individuals are 100% necessary to make this event happen. Cave Creek Rodeo Days has more than 160 volunteers from its Board of Directors to the person who helped you park your car. ALL of our volunteers donate their time to ensure the Town of Cave Creek has this wonderful event. If you see or meet one out there, PLEASE THANK THEM! Without them this outstanding event would not happen. It is very hard to get people to dedicate so many hours of their free time, without compensation, to put on such an elaborate event!
CAVE CREEK RODEO DAYS IS ENJOYED BY EVERYONE WITH HIGH ENERGY ACTION AND ENTERTAINMENT.
SO DON’T MISS THE 2019 ANNUAL EVENT!
SEE YOU ALL AT THE CHUTES!!!
