Every February, Tucson showcases its western heritage during La Fiesta de los Vaqueros, the community's Celebration of the Cowboys established in 1925. This major outdoor event attracts locals and visitors from all over the world. Schools close on Thursday and Friday of rodeo week so families can enjoy the festive parade and rodeo traditions. Visitors come to experience the area's Old West traditions, including this championship rodeo, under warm, sunny skies.

Center stage is the Tucson Rodeo with six performances. As one of the top 25 rodeos on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) calendar, the Tucson Rodeo attracts the sports current and former world champions, all vying for a share of over $460,000 in prize money.
