The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series is the most successful weekly rodeo in the country. While the roots of rodeo in this modest little Northwestern Colorado ranch town/world class ski resort trace back over 100 years, the humble beginnings of the weekly rodeo were known in the mid 1970s as the “Friday Night Jackpot.” Contestants gathered once a week to compete for their accumulated entry fees.

Know Before You Go
How early should I get there?
The gates open at 5:30. If you want to enjoy the delicious barbeque, you should plan on allowing yourself enough time to eat before you sit down for the rodeo.
Where is the best seat?
All seats offer an excellent view of the arena. However, since all seats are general admission, if you want to sit in a particular area, you should be there by 6:30.
Where are the rodeo grounds located?
The Brent Romick Rodeo Arena is located just a couple of blocks from downtown at 5th Street and Howelsen Parkway in the Howelsen Hill sports complex.
What about parking?
There is parking on the rodeo grounds and nearby. If you want to avoid the crowd after the rodeo ends, you can park downtown and walk to the rodeo arena.
Should I bring a jacket?
The temperature cools down after the sun goes down, especially during the early part of the summer season. We recommend that you bring a jacket or a blanket to keep warm.
What happens if it rains?
The rodeo goes on even if it rains. As the arena gets muddier, the action can become even more entertaining to watch.
How long does the rodeo last?
Approximately two hours. Occasionally it may go a little longer.
Can I bring my dog?
No, dogs are not allowed at the rodeo. It is dangerous for your pet, as well as the rodeo animals.
Can I pet the animals?
Please do not go near the rodeo animals, especially the bulls. These animals are not pets and can be temperamental.
Can I fly a drone with a camera around the Rodeo Grounds?
Flying drones around the rodeo grounds is not allowed under any circumstances.
