The 71st Annual PRCA Homestead Championship Rodeo and Rodeo Days Events for 2020
The Homestead Championship Rodeo is an annual tradition that grew out of a group of seventeen founding members who wanted to showcase this unique western sporting event. It is one of the oldest annual professional sporting events in South Florida and the only PRCA Rodeo in Miami-Dade County. Our rodeo is one of over 650 sanctioned annually by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). The PRCA is the largest and oldest rodeo-sanctioning body in the world; ensuring that every event is managed with fairness and competence and that the livestock used is healthy and cared for to the highest standards. More than 30 million people identify themselves as fans of Pro Rodeo.
Each year in December, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo takes place in Las Vegas; this is the World Series / Super Bowl of professional Rodeo. We’re expecting some of the PRCA’s biggest stars to from the NFR to compete at our 2020 Rodeo with their World PRCA|RAM Standings noted here: including Bareback Rider: Taylor Broussard #15 (in 2019), Steer Wrestlers: Kyle Irwin #38, Juan Alcazar Jr. #48 & Justin Thigpen #25, Bull Riders Koby Radley #7 (in 2019), Eli Vastbinder #21 (in 2019) & Dustin Bouquet #36 (in 2019).
