Tucson Rodeo 2020 – La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros

February 15th-23rd celebrate rodeo thrills, spills, and action during Tucson, Arizona’s Tucson Rodeo – La Fiesta de los Vaqueros 2020!

It’s time for the Tucson Rodeo 2020! Gear up and pull on your cowboy boots, because the annual PRCA rodeo is kicking off February 15-23, 2020. Tucson, I hope you are ready for all of the great fun that comes with the Tucson Rodeo. Make sure to catch all the behind the scenes action on your favorite Cowboy Lifestyle Network social channel. Hang on!

Tucson, Arizona, famous for its wild western flair has seen its fair share of award-winning western action. While it may be a hotspot for filming some of the world’s most popular westerns, including Tombstone (1993) and The Frisco Kid (1979,) Tucson is much more than a movie set! Each year Tucson pulls out all the stops for one of the most exciting events in rodeo, La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros, running February 15th-23rd.  This 9-day long party is for the cowboys and cowgirls as they compete in PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) rodeo events such as bull riding, bareback and saddle bronc, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, and barrel racing.

With a past as rich as a prospector hitting gold, La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros combines western tradition, with new-age excitement to create one of the most exciting events during the PRCA season. The year was 1925 when an idea sparked in Leighton Kramer to draw more visitors to Tucson during the mid-winter months. With a chance to promote Tucson and celebrate its western history, La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros was born.
