Wild West

Known as the “Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West” the Reno Rodeo has been part of the rich tradition and history of Reno since 1919. For 10 days in June each year Reno embraces its roots and celebrates the Wild West.

Beginning with a five-day trek and 100 miles across the desert, the Reno Rodeo Association Committee hosts an authentic old-west cattle drive. It is considered the kick-off to the Reno Rodeo each year. Guests and drovers ride horseback and herd 300 head of Corriento rodeo steers from Doyle, California heading southeast along the California/Nevada border to Reno where the cattle and herders parade through downtown Reno and end at the Livestock Events Center.

The Reno Rodeo is a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) sanctioned sporting event and includes a variety of events and activities such as bull riding, bronc riding, tie-down roping, and steer wrestling; family activities include a carnival, mutton bustin, wiener dog races and so much more.

Grab your cowboy hat, pull on your boots and get ready for wild time in the wild west at the Reno Livestock Events Center in Reno.
