Beaver Creek Rodeo

COVID-19 Update

While we're hopeful about opening our mountain operations for the summer, it is too early to announce specific opening dates or activities. We're closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and we'll continue to follow the guidance of public health officials to determine when it's safe to resume operations. Based on current information, Beaver Creek Resort Company has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Blues, Brews, and BBQ Festival, as well as the 2020 Beaver Creek Rodeo Series.

Rodeo Series
PLEASE NOTE: You can now register to participate online in advance. Tickets for the following do not allow admission into the Rodeo; all participants require a Rodeo ticket. A limited number of tickets will be available starting May 1st, 2019 and then additional tickets will be released on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. 2 weeks and 1 week before each Rodeo event. If tickets sell out, then you can be added to the wait list at the information booth starting at 5:00 p.m. the day of the event.

Ranch Saddle Bronc Riding
Ranch Saddle is an iconic Rodeo staple - 8 seconds of vicious riding, unless, of course, the bronc wins! The rider can be disqualified for many infractions including: pulling leather (holding onto the saddle), changing hands on the rein, wrapping the rein around his hand or losing a stirrup. The horse must be saddled exactly as it would be for ranch work. No rodeo saddles here!

Team Roping
Two cowboys, a header and a heeler work together to catch a steer as fast as possible, earning points for their skill and speed.

Barrel Racing
Elegant riding and precise timing are the keys to winning this intense competition which consists of sprinting into the arena and tightly turning a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels.

Bull Riding
In this dangerous event, bull riders must overcome 2,000 lbs of angry animal angst for 8 exciting seconds. A loose rope and the cowboy’s one-handed steely grip are all that hold the rider to the beast.


PLEASE NOTE: Online ticket sales will end at 4:30 p.m. on the day of the event. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door starting at 5:00 p.m.
