Frequently Asked Questions
How long does each performance last?
Each performance lasts about three hours.
What rodeo events take place during the Silver Spurs Rodeo?
During each Silver Spurs Rodeo performance, you’ll be able to see all seven traditional rodeo events: bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, and barrel racing.
Are there any camera restrictions?
Yes. As the Silver Spurs Rodeo is a Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA) sanctioned event, certain photography and media guidelines attendees and media must adhere to.
Only PRCA card-or permit-holding photographers and credentialed media photographers may shoot photos on the rodeo grounds using a professional lens. Fans may take photos from the stands, but only with cell phones or small cameras with no extended or detachable lenses.
What is the order of events during the rodeo?
Each performance of the February Silver Spurs Rodeo will start with Bull Riding followed by Steer Wrestling, Bareback, Team Roping, Saddle Bronc, Tie Down, Barrel Racing and then will finish with a second section of Bull Riding. During our June Silver Spurs Rodeo performance, the rodeo schedule will be the same as mentioned above, with the inclusion of junior bull riding before Junior Barrel Racing after our adult barrel racing competition.

If I purchased my Silver Spurs Rodeo tickets via Groupon, how can I redeem them?
If you have purchased your ticket through Groupon, please print out your voucher from Groupon. The voucher is your ticket. You can bring a printed version of the voucher to be scanned or bring your phone, and we can redeem the Groupon right from it. If you have other Groupon questions, please call Groupon directly.
When do tickets go on sale?
Tickets go on sale a month before the rodeo. When you purchase your tickets through our website, you’ll be able to print the tickets from your computer. Before you leave your house, make sure that bring them with you as that is what you’ll use to get at the front door. We require that all attendees have a ticket to enter the arena, including children. If your child is 10 and under, please print them at ticket as well.
Can I add tickets to my group on the day of the show and still get the discount?
Unfortunately, we will be unable to honor the price and add tickets to your group during the day of the performance. As group sale tickets have to be purchased in advance to get the discount, we encourage attendees to plan ahead and get a final count early.
Will the rodeo sell out?
We always encourage guests to buy their tickets in advance since all showings have the capability to sell out. We can never guarantee that tickets will be available prior to a show, so please plan ahead.
