We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. We enjoyed the shops and restaurants. The highlight was our visit to the Sharlit museum.

One of the very special things about Prescott. Our family makes the rodeo an annual event. It is always entertaining and reminds you of what small town America is all about.

I have been attending this event for years and it's on a downhill slide. Used to be fun with plenty of vendors, mechanical bull, etc . . and some actual bull riders with talent. Now it's nothing outside of arena concessions and no riding talent. I will say the quality of the bulls has gone way up, unfortunately the riders... More

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!
