The RAM PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) California Circuit Finals Rodeo Committee and the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds today announced that tickets are on sale atavfair.com for the upcoming RAM California Circuit Finals Rodeo on October 7 and 8.

The rodeo will showcase the competitive skills of the top twelve contestants in the California Circuit for all seven rodeo events (bareback riding, bull riding, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping and barrel racing). And once again, the best of announcing will be provided by Don Jesser and Kelly Kenney.

Johnny Zamrzla, Committee Chairman of the RAM California Circuit Finals Rodeo 2016 commented, “We are back with a bigger and better Circuit Finals Rodeo to present to the community. Together with our partners, the Antelope Valley Fair, City of Lancaster and our many supportive sponsors, we are bringing the top 12 contestants in each of Pro Rodeo’s seven events to compete using the top animal “athletes” that have performed in numerous California rodeos. We guarantee these three performances will be affordable with our new, $10 off tickets codes, and good clean fun for the entire family. We look forward to seeing you at the rodeo!”

Rodeo festivities kick-off on Friday, October 7, Patriot Day, where fans are encouraged to wear red, white and blue. The gates open at 5 p.m., and the Rodeo will begin at 7 p.m. There will be TWO CA Finals Rodeos on Saturday, October 8th. The Gates open at 11 a.m., and the Matinee Rodeo will begin at 1 p.m. Seats for the 1pm Matinee Rodeo only are festival seating (first come, first seated), so come early.

The Saturday evening Rodeo will begin at 7 p.m. and attendees are encouraged to get to their seats Saturday night for a special Ride for the Pink opening event. Ride for the Pink is an organization dedicated to raising money for breast cancer research, awareness and treatment. Guests can be a part of the night’s theme by wearing “Pink” in honor of those who have lost their battle, who are survivors, who are currently
fighting cancer and in support of finding the cure for Breast Cancer.


Rodeo patrons are encouraged to come “early and stay late” on both evenings to dance the night away with Jacob Nelson and the Tone Wranglers (www.jacobnelson.com), who will perform at the Van Dam Barn Dance once again sponsored by High Desert Dairy immediately after the Rodeo in the Corona Cantina.

The KTPI Radio station will have dummy roping practice and cornhole games before the evening Rodeos, and free photos on the Rodeo Red Carpet will also be available each night.


Bobby Kerr Mustang Act

Taking place both days will be the Bobby Kerr Mustang Act. Bobby Kerr has been in horse training for over 40 years. He has trained and shown Reining, Roping, Working Cow Horse and Cutting. He is the Founder of the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame (TCHF) now located in the Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas. Bobby is also a talented craftsman. For over 20 years he owned and operated Cowboy Art creating many custom metal signs and fixtures. Bobby has just won the 2016 Dress Specialty Act of the Year and will be featured at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas this December. In 2015, Bobby was also nominated in the top 5 for PRCA Specialty Act of the Year.

Rodeo performances also include The Riata Ranch Cowboy Girls who are known worldwide for their western performing arts including trick riding and trick roping. To date, they have traveled to 18 countries and across the United States representing the Western American lifestyle. Each girl is a product of the training provided by the Riata Ranch Youth Horsemanship Clinics and the philosophy and way of life exemplified in the daily routines at Riata Ranch. Students chosen for the teams go through an extensive program that focuses on combining physical skills that promote positive life skills.
