The rodeo that is rich in the western tradition is back this year from May 13th through the 15th for the 60th Anniversary of the Tops In Texas Pro Rodeo in Jacksonville, Texas. The Tops in Texas Pro Rodeo has the name for a reason! They have built a rodeo legacy over the last 60 years showcasing the best in the business in each event year after year. Fans and competitors come from across the Lonestar State to be a part of the action year after year.
During the rodeo fans will also be able to enjoy world champion specialty acts. This year’s lineup includes rodeo clown John Harrison who is a 7x NFR barrel man and 4x Coors Man In The Can. As well as incredible bucking stock from Pete Carr Pro Rodeo who has been the 2X WPRA Stock Contractor of the Year and has numerous World Champion Bucking Horses.
The competition may be tough, but fans can expect to feel right at home when they experience the local camaraderie of this rodeo and its fans. This is an event with activities for the whole family to enjoy! Concessions with great food, and merchandise vendors to keep you busy all day.
The event is also community-driven as the volunteers from the Jacksonville Riders Club and the Jacksonville Lions Club help to sponsor and put on the rodeo each year. The profits from their efforts then go back into charitable areas around the community.
