While eating breakfast the next morning I overheard 2 couples talking about the rodeo we had all attended the night before. One couple was lamenting how it used to be a place where friends and neighbors gathered for a visit and some good, clean fun. "Now it's overrun with tourists!", she said. Well, I'm not exactly a tourist since I... More

We are always searching for great places to spend the 4th of July. We chose Prescott this year and it was a great decision! The parade around the town square was more than 2 hours long and filled with incredible variety and patriotism. The whole square was filled with booths featuring art, crafts and specialty food items. I've never attended... More

We moved from Chicago to Phoenix in 2006 and my wife had never been to more than a county fair rodeo. We attended our first in 2006 and really had a good time and have attended most years since. We enjoy the clowns, bulls, announcer and all the people. We found this year to be a little tiring. The same... More

Saturday Evening I experienced my very first rodeo. I must say that I enjoyed every minute of it. When I made the reservations online (just a couple of days ago) there were only like 6 seats available. The two I chose were perfect and cost $20 per ticket. Parking was $5.00. Our seats were right where the action was. All... More

Love rodeo and this one is good. However paid extra for arena level seating only to have photographers and fans standing in front of me blocking view of chutes. A real frustration for me and the 9 guests I brought. Portable restrooms Had not been emptied in I don't know when. Won't go into anymore discusting detail. Real third world.... More

Went to the Rodeo last night and they put on a very fast paced active show! Lots of food, clothing & souvenir vendors. Drink prices reasonable and they will allow sealed water bottles but nothing else.

We've been going off and on for the past 23-years!! We went last night, 06/29/16, to take our daughter's fiance who had never been to a Rodeo! He experienced his first Indian Fry Bread, first Birch Beer, first Kettle Korn and then of course the main attraction!!! We sat in Upper I, had a great view, close to the restrooms... More

We moved to Prescott about a year ago, and this is the first Rodeo I have ever attended. It was pretty amazing! Beautiful horses, agile Cowboys and happy fans. Lots of foods and beer and stands selling cowboy (and cowgirl) gear....Had a fun time and I'm sure we will go again next year!
