Prescott Rodeo was first born in 1888 and is the oldest rodeo in history. The rodeo name means "to round up" in English and the tradition comes from the Spanish vaquero. In the early Prescott days the rodeo was simply held on a piece of land now called Forbing Park and was a time for the ranchers to show off their skills. Today the Prescott rodeo has not just grown is size but attracts amazing talent. The event is usually held over Fourth of July weekend and consists of 8 main performances. These include bull riding, saddle bronc, bareback, steer wrestling, tie down, team rope, and barrel racing. The winners of these events receive cash prices as well as the glory of showing the entire rodeo their talent. The Prescott Rodeo is always looking for contestants, volunteers, and vendors. For more information, check out their website. The Prescott Frontier Days Inc. has many events year round and many right before the Rodeo. These include parades, Rodeo dances, and Art and Craft shows. Be sure to check out the Prescott calendar for more details.
