When should I get there?

The gates open at 3pm, however, if you want to come watch the Slack Performance, it starts at 12pm.  If you want to enjoy the delicious Western BBQ, you should plan on allowing yourself enough time to eat before you sit down for the rodeo.

Where should I sit?

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 6pm.

Where are the rodeo grounds?

It’s quite simple really.  From Winter Park, travel North on US40 to the stop light in Fraser.  Turn left and go under the RR bridge, taking an immediate right.  Travel until the road T’s and turn left.  Travel about a mile and you will see the arena on the right.  You can’t miss it.  Easy huh?

What about parking?

It’s free and right at the rodeo grounds.

Should I bring a jacket?

The temperature cools down after the sun goes down, so we recommend 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.  We do have covered grand stands.

How long does the rodeo last?

We try to be done by 9 or 9:30pm.  Occasionally it may go longer.

Can I bring my dog?

No, dogs are not allowed at the rodeo.  It is dangerous for your pet, as well as the contestants and rodeo animals.
