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.
