Parker County_1280

The 76th Annual Parker County Sherrif’s Posse Frontier Days Rodeo begins with its Xtreme Bulls event on June 6 before the PRCA Rodeo begins on June 7. The revent was started by 13 Ranchers to keep the Western heritage and way of life going 76 years ago and has been one of the most exciting rodeos since. This year, athletes compete for their share of nearly $60,000.

The Format

The Parker County Sherrif’s Posse Frontier Days Rodeo is a simple format to understand. Athletes across all events are given one opportunity to submit their fastest run or highest-marked ride. The only event with more than one round is steer roping, where cowboys compete in three rounds and the Average winner is crowned champion.
