Help Support the 2020 Cattlemen’s Days Rodeo Effort
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.
This year we must raise at least $150,000 to put on this professional rodeo, which is fan-less but 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.

UPDATE: We have raised $85K and counting as of August 6th, which leaves $65,000 to raise by August 10th. Let’s do this!
