In honor of the fact that the Clovis Rodeo turns 100 this year, cowboys and cowgirls will flock to the Clovis Rodeo Grounds this Saturday and Sunday (April 5th and 6th) for Jackpot Roping. This is free for everyone to watch. The following weekend (April 12th), the free Ranch Rodeo comes to the grounds with teams of cowboys and cowgirls competing to see who will be the fastest at riding, roping, branding, reining and performing cow work exercises.
The entire month of celebrating the Clovis Rodeo turning 100 culminates in the official Clovis Rodeo 2014 on April 24-27th. The PBR Bull Riding Tour takes place at 6:30pm on Thursday, April 24th, with American Idol winner Scotty McCreery performing in a concert afterwards. On Friday, the PRCA Rodeo competes, with country music artist Tyler Farr putting in a live musical performance. Saturday kicks things off with a Rodeo Parade through downtown Clovis at 9:30am. After the rodeo competition, adults ages 21+ are invited to come to the Clovis Rodeo Dance at 7:30pm. Tickets are just $10 each. The Clovis Rodeo 2014 ends on Sunday with a special Kids Rodeo and final championship round of rodeo competition during Tough Enough to Wear Pink Day. Are you tough enough to sport a pink ensemble? Prove it!
