We try to get to the rodeo at least once each year. It's always the highlight of a great weekend in Prescott. The rodeo performances are always full of excitement, the food is good, and the shopping is cool. Every year it's like we are part of history--the world's oldest rodeo.

Merlindancer, as a reviewer for events you should know better than to show your politics. With your distaste for the commentator voicing his opinion after taking a poll in a known right leaning city it is obvious that you lean left. So in my opinion keeping your opinion out of a review for a wonderful city with a fun event... More

While the atmosphere and competition at the World's Oldest Rodeo is entertaining, the commentary over the public address system is not. I was stunned when the PA announcer asked how many Republicans were in the audience and how many Democrats. Then there was his statements ripping President Obama. Political comments about any politician have no place at a sporting event.

Really good rodeo. The one has some NFR caliber participants as well as some locals that try their hand. Overall a very entertaining rodeo. Get your tickets at least 3 months or more in advance if you want good seats. I would guess that about half the seats at the arena are too far for me from the action. We... More

Gather your friends and head to Frontier days and the Rodeo. This year was my first time. I will be back every year that can be there. The rodeo is awesome. Town concerts and street fair are great also. Don't be concerned that you're not a cowboy. All people are welcome.

The 4th of July in Prescott always included the parade on Saturday morning, cowboys in town for the rodeo over the course of a wholetweek, more pickup trucks than you could shake a stick at, great food, great beer and a whole lot of people watching!

This was a fun family activity. We live out of town put have gone to Prescott a few years to watch the rodeo. It attracts different types of people including cowboys and ranchers. The rodeo has lots of different vendors which allowed lots of food selections, arts and crafts. Everyone from volunteers and workers to those there just to watch... More

Prescott is the place to be for the 4th. Hometown Parade, Boot Races, best Craft Fair, the Rodeo, Cowboy Dances and spending the day at Pioneer Park, lounging under a canopy with friends, listening to great bands and waiting for the incredible Fireworks Show! Can't beat it.

This piece of Americana is a fun time for a rodeo. Be sure and bring a rain coat or hat just in case because this week happens to mark the beginning of the monsoon season every year. Rodeos get better with mud btw. Enjoy the food and the fun!

Great place for family fun and also couples...the rodeo is great and is very close to downtown and courthouse square. They serve food, beverages and spirits...always held in early July and attracts thousands of visitors
