Silver Spurs Rodeo Celebrates Southern Showdown This October!

The Silver Spurs Rodeo Southern Showdown is all set for a two-day festival of rodeo action October 1st & 2nd, bringing together professional rough-stock riders, the biggest broncs and the baddest bulls all under one roof, Southern style!

With a purse of $30,000+, the Showdown will include the extreme rodeo events of bull riding, saddle bronc riding, and bareback riding, and kick off the 2022 Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) season with money earned counting for the 2022 world standings.

Part of the Silver Spurs Riding Club’s tradition includes junior barrel racing, featuring young rodeo stars ready to start their careers in the Silver Spurs Arena. Plus, the event will see the return of mutton bustin’, a sheep-riding event for kids (children must be between ages 4 to 6 or weigh less than 40lbs). This event will happen between bareback and saddle bronc riding.

“We are excited to bring this southern style event to Osceola County and look forward to presenting some of the top bull and bronc riders in the PRCA,” said Dustin Bronson, 2021-22 Big Boss of the Silver Spurs Rodeo. “We hope our guests enjoy two nights of action-packed tradition that includes bull riding, bareback riding, and saddle bronc riding, rodeo’s wildest rides, at the Silver Spurs Arena.”

The event takes place at Osceola Heritage Park, 1875 Silver Spur Lane, Kissimmee, FL 34744, October 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. (both nights). Tickets are just $20 per adult, and kids 10 and under are FREE with paying adult.

All donations go directly to organizations in Osceola County for scholarships, cancer support, veteran needs, and more. All donations are greatly appreciated and can be made on the tickets page. For more information, tickets, and guidelines for a safe event, click here!
