ProRodeo World Champions & rising stars from across the U.S. and Canadian Circuits will compete in the shadow of America’s Mountain for over $1 million in payouts. It’s all happening at the NFR Open at the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo, July 11-15, 2023 in Colorado Springs, Colorado! More than 200 contestants from across the 12 U.S. Circuits (plus Canada) will be bringing their talents to scenic and historic Norris Penrose Event Center, competing in Bareback Riding, Breakaway Roping, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping, Saddle Bronc Riding, Tie-down Roping, Barrel Racing, and Bull Riding, culminating with semifinals and finals on Saturday, July 15 when the national circuit champions will be crowned. Grounds open at 10:00 a.m. for the matinee performances and 4:00 p.m. for the evening performances. Arriving early helps with the crowd arriving at peak times and there is plenty to do before the Rodeo with a wide range of vendors offering food, drinks, apparel, and other Western fare, as well as the PPOBR Fan Zone with lots of family-friendly fun, plus some activities for the grown-ups too! After the Rodeo, live music and dancing await in the Coors Roadhouse Saloon so plan to stick around.
