136th Annual World's Oldest Continuous Rodeo

For 136 continuous years Payson, Arizona has been celebrating the history and tradition of Pro-Rodeo.  It is still held the third full weekend in August and according to the PRCA, which sanctions the event it is considered the country's Best Small Rodeo.  We invite you to come and experience the exhilaration of rodeo, the sport of the Old West! Some of the world’s greatest professional cowboys and cowgirls will keep you on the edge of your seat, for over two hours. They'll compete for cash and prizes totaling in excess of more than $50,000 in prize money. Fearless bull riders, steer wrestlers, gorgeous bronc riders, specialty acts, and colorful clowns will keep you entertained and shouting for more.
