There’s lots to do before the Rodeo begins. Grounds open at 4 p.m. for the evening performances, and at 10 a.m. for the Saturday matinee. Mutton bustin’ preliminaries or try-outs are tons of fun for everyone. Plus there’s mechanical bull riding, pony rides, photo opportunities with longhorns, gold panning, and much, much more. With vendor booths on the north and south side of the arena, you’ll see a wide array of souvenirs to choose from. Vendors and concessions offer plenty of options for meals, snacks, and drinks.
And after the Rodeo, head on over to the Coors Roadhouse Saloon for great music, dancing, and some ice cold Coors.
