Rodeo de Santa Fe
Get ready for the 65th Rodeo de Santa Fe coming to town June 18-21, 2014! Saddle up for all the heart-pounding, mud-slinging, action-packed performances of a top PRCA rodeo with a hometown feel. The Rodeo de Santa Fe began in 1949 when Roy Butler, Austin “Slim” Green, Gene Petchesky, Paul Ragle, Paul Rutledge and few others had a dream and determination to organize a professional rodeo in Santa Fe, NM. This dream exceeded their ambitious expectations and today remains one of the top 60 PRCA Rodeos in the nation. Last year’s Rodeo de Santa Fe drew over 500 contestants, including World Champion cowboys: Taos Muncy and Cody Teel as well as local New Mexico favorites: Justin Mascarenas, Eric Mascarenas, Chase Massengill and Kandace Blanchard.
Rodeo de Santa Fe is fun for the entire family, with many events for the little ones! The Mutton Bustin’ and youth barrel racers continue to be a crowd favorite of young and old alike! Not to mention the carnival midway, concessions, vendors and a beer garden.
In true rodeo fashion, the 65th Rodeo de Santa Fe will kick off with its annual parade in beautiful downtown Santa Fe on Saturday, June 14 at 11:00 am. Be sure to grab the kids and some lawn chairs and join the local community for a fun and exciting morning. Please visit the “Parade” tab for more information.
