Texas’ premier western family attraction
It’s Mesquite, TX. Where Legends Begin! The talent of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association comes to the Mesquite Arena for 12 weeks of action packed, heart-pounding, ole-fashioned, western fun we call RODEO. The cowboys and cowgirls accumulate points over the span of 12-weeks in hopes of gaining a spot to the Mesquite ProRodeo Series Finals. The top 10-point earners in each event are invited to compete in the finals that consist of the TOP NOTCH in the sport. The finals takes place the nights of August 23rd and 24th with $21,000 added to the purse to ensure edge of your seat action!
Our 56th Season
Every Friday and Saturday night May 31st – August 24th, 2013, thousands of visitors will witness the thrills of the original western sport, RODEO!
Mesquite ProRodeo is “family”
Families dominate the attendance at the rodeo and we like that. We work hard to provide an exciting place where children and adults can be safe and still get close to the action: crazy clowns, brave cowboys, talented cowgirls, fast horses and big bulls. Many of our guests are coming to see their first professional rodeo so you may see people from many nationalities and countries.
