Along with the many PRCA competitive events, there will be action in the arena presented by young western athletes. There are also a wealth of attractions and activities planned, which will no doubt entertain all members of the family.

About Queen Creek
The fairly new town was established in 1989. The unique Queen Creek name is a combination of the names of a mountain-based silver mine and a nearby creek. The name also commemorates Queen Creek’s farming and ranching close association with the land. As horses play a major economic and recreational role in the community, the Roots N Boots pro rodeo was established.

Roots N Boots Events
Each of the four days the festivities take place, PRCA cowboys and cowgirls promise to bring all the thrills and chills which you would expect during the timed pro rodeo events. Non-PRCA participants and little ones also get in on the act. The long lineup includes:
