Arizona Black Rodeo

This weekend we attended our first rodeo. Since we learned about U.S. Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves (and celebrated him earlier this year) we’ve been on a bit of a cowperson kick so when I heard about the Arizona Black Rodeo, we purchased our tickets, encouraged another family to roll, and spent a really fun three hours watching Black cowboys and cowgirls compete in all manner of horse competition. They even had a game for kids under 10 where they got to chase a cow and a Mutton Busting portion where little kids get to ride a bucking sheep!

I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was really fun. There were a few food booths, the music (primarily hip hop with some old school sprinkled in) was good, the announcers were funny, and the competition was fierce! There was even a group of line dancers that got up and danced to “I Need Money” during the barrel racing! It was definitely a party. Lol

Mostly BBQ stands along with fried foods but the Nation was there. You KNOW we got a bean pie. Yum! Most of the places took credit cards too.

They really got into the cowperson theme.  =)


There were lots of women riders. The barrel racing (a women only event) was thrilling.
