La Fiesta de los Vaqueros Tucson Rodeo is celebrating 97 years of rodeo as it returns to the Tucson Rodeo Grounds Feb. 19-27, 2022. The Tucson Rodeo, a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association top 25 rodeo, is “Bustin’ Loose” after a one-year pandemic hiatus.
“The Tucson Rodeo Committee looks forward to getting back to rodeo action this February and continuing the tradition of this uniquely Tucson event,” said Mark Baird, board chairman of the Tucson Rodeo Committee.
Event tickets range from $18 – $35. The Tucson Rodeo also offers two hospitality venues, Vaquero Club and Gold Buckle. The Vaquero Club offers covered premium seating, televised rodeo action replays, hosted food and beverages, and parking. Tickets are $80 each. Perfect for corporate hospitality, Gold Buckle boxes are covered box seating within the grandstand section.

This year, the Tucson Rodeo is excited to announce a truly unique VIP experience. The VIP package includes a behind-the-scenes tour of the rodeo grounds, VIP credentials, parking, catered food and beverages, and balcony seating at the announcer’s stand.
