WRCA Rodeo Tickets
WRCA sanctioned rodeos are held all over the country each year. The organization was created as a way for ranchers to preserve heritage and tradition. All rodeo participants are working ranchers. At the rodeos, ranch hands compete against others in their field. Each ranch can submit a team of participants to accomplish all of the required rodeo events for a cumulative score. Not only do the rodeos garner attention for working ranchers, but they also focus on raising funds for their charity. The WRCA charity awards ranches with money via scholarships and through a crisis fund. All ranchers participating in the rodeo circuit are expected to be dedicated to a cowboy way of life including a determined work ethic and historic western sportsmanship. Traditionally, all qualifying teams head to the Amarillo, Texas Civic Center on the second weekend of November to compete for the national title. Get your WRCA rodeo tickets at StubHub.

What to expect when attending a WRCA rodeo?
The most important difference between a traditional rodeo and a WRCA rodeo is that all of the cowboys and cowgirls participating in this type of rodeo are active ranchers. The participants are considered amateurs, and a great deal of proceeds from these events are donated back to charities that support working ranches.
What entertainers have performed at WRCA rodeos?
As with tradition for country western rodeos, musical entertainment is provided at the conclusion of each show. WRCA rodeo entertainers are musicians that support the western lifestyle and morality. Former entertainers at these events include Dale Burson, Kevin Davis, Jeff Gore, Ross Knox, Daron Little, Carin Mari, Pat Meade, Chuck Milner, Jay Snider and Caitlyn Taussig.
When does the WRCA rodeo season begin and end?
When teams of cowboys are participating in the WRCA rodeo circuit, their goal is to achieve enough points to qualify to attend the WRCA National Championship in November. The first WRCA sanctioned rodeos begin in March of a calendar year. Teams can compete in rodeos from March to early October to score points. The majority of sanctioned rodeos that can help a team qualify for nationals are held during July, August and September.
What rodeo events can I expect to see at a WRCA rodeo?
The types of events at a WRCA rodeo are different than traditional events at a professional bull rider rodeo. Events completed by working ranchers at a WRCA sanctioned rodeo include ranch bronc riding, stray gathering, team penning, wild cow milking and team branding.Back to Top
