With that being said, they need the help of your community and our generous sponsors to be successful. In addition to producing Pro-Rodeos, the DFCA are also committed to supporting local charities.

Started over 60 years ago by one man, Cervi Rodeo Company has grown into one of the largest stock contractors for both big and small rodeo productions across the United States. Mike Cervi, founder, began his rodeo career at age 14, traveling across North America from the great plains of Texas to the rolling hills of Grand Prairie Alberta, Canada serving as a rodeo clown.
In 2005 sons Binion and Chase Cervi along with their cousin Scott took over the day to day operation of the rodeo company. Mike continues to oversee the entire operation and provide assistance, advice and experience when needed. The Cervi family has a large and extended team that are dedicated and excited to help produce some of the nation’s most exciting rodeos.
There will be no charge for parking at the Cave Creek Memorial Arena this year. However, the DFCA & Cervi Rodeo is encouraging their guests to bring food donations in support of our local Foothills Food Bank. Boxes will be placed outside the general admission gates. Please bring your canned food donatons to the entry gates. These changes are being made to alleviate the bottle necking at the parking entrance so DFCA’s guests can get into the arena quickly and enjoy the rodeo.
