The 2020 Rodeo Will Go On!
Cattlemen’s Days 2020 announces that we have been given a variance from Gunnison County to hold our annual PRCA rodeo, 3 nights over Labor Day Weekend, 2020. We are the oldest continuous rodeo and the 4th oldest professional rodeo in the nation. The Cattlemen’s Days celebration persevered during World War 1, the 1918 Pandemic, World War 2, and the Great Depression.
GOOD NEWS! We reached our fundraising goal. The professional rodeo will be Sept. 4th, 5th, and 6th. We have received a variance for limited fan seating awarded to individuals and sponsors that contributed to the recent fundraising effort. The rodeo will be nationally televised on the Cowboy Channel for the whole cowboy nation to enjoy.
Selected One of “THE TOP 101 WESTERN EVENTS” in the country by American Cowboy magazine
It’s been 120 years since the Gunnison Valley started celebrating its western way of life. Each July, the ranching culture struts its stuff in the “Granddaddy of Colorado Rodeos,” an event staged by the community for PRCA competitors and the people who love to watch them.
During the 2020 celebration, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Cattlemen’s Days promises the same kind of boot-stomping excitement that Gunnison pioneers enjoyed – but in a different way without fans in the stands. Bull riding, barrel racing, and the best cowboys and cowgirls – hold onto your hat for the Valley’s finest tradition! We are committed to making this 120-year-old Gunnison, Colorado tradition continue in 2020.
