The Grand National Rodeo 2019

The Grand National Rodeo is all set to be one of the biggest rodeo events in the USA!

It is an annual fair which, like other PRCA efforts, is intended to bring the flavor of the West to a modern urban audience. The Grand National Rodeo is organized with the help of the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Thus, it is also fair for agriculture. Livestock of every kind is displayed and judged in numerous competitions.

The Grand National Rodeo will take place this year the same place it does every year: Cow Palace in Daly City.

What is the Cow Palace?

The Cow Palace is a large indoor arena that was originally built to house and showcase livestock and agriculture. Over time, the indoor spacing proved to be the right size for rodeo events like the Grand National Rodeo. This is also due to the modern stable and barn arrangements it houses.

The Grand National Rodeo will formally take place on October 11th – 12th & 18th – 19th of this year!

September is almost over so hurry now to book your tickets today for one of the main rodeo events of the year. There are various options available for children and adults. You can buy online or visit us in person.
