After one year off because of the pandemic is back (February 19-27). Tucson’s annual celebration of the cowboys
has been heralded as Southern Arizona’s oldest and most celebrated heritage event since its inception in 1925.
It’s centered around the Tucson Rodeo, one of the top 25 rodeos on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA)
calendar, at which the sport’s best cowboys and cowgirls compete in six rodeo performances at Tucson Rodeo Grounds.
The fun also includes the Tucson Rodeo Parade, billed as the longest non-motorized (horse-drawn) parade
in the world on Thursday, Feb. 24, 2022. An estimated 150,000 spectators line the streets along the route or
purchase tickets for grandstand seating to see a parade of over 150 western-theme floats and buggies,
Mexican folk dancers and marching musical groups. (Source: Visit Tucson)

  1. I must admit, I’m not a fan of rodeos.
