Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Days kicks off on Tuesday, July 9th with the Rodeo Parade that’s become a hometown favorite. The Parade heads down Tejon and features a wide array of floats, bands, and attractions.
Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo bursts out of the chutes Wednesday, July 10th at the Norris-Penrose Event Center, with nightly performances continuing through Saturday, plus a Saturday Matinee. Bring the whole family and watch the nation’s finest cowboys and cowgirls compete in bareback bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, and other thrilling events. The action’s not just confined to the arena, either! Grounds open at 4:00 p.m.— arrive early, skip the traffic, and enjoy the family-friendly pre-show fun, including mutton bustin’ tryouts, gold panning, trick rope demos, performing pigs, pony rides, mechanical bull rides, and much, much more.
Celebrate all things Western and support our local military and their families! Our military is honored at every performance and the proceeds from the rodeo go to directly support these servicemen and women and their families.
