The Silver Spurs Riding Club announces its 10th Annual Monster Bulls event on Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m., and the 145th Silver Spurs Rodeo on Feb. 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 21 at 2 p.m.
Real rodeo cowboys and cowgirls will be holding on for the ride of their lives as they compete against the clock for an entire year of bragging rights and $50,000 in prize money.
Kicking off rodeo week on Saturday, Feb. 13, is the 10th Annual Monster Bulls competition. The performance starts at 7:30 p.m., and these cowboys will try their skills on some of the country’s most unpredictable livestock. If you're looking for extreme sports, Monster Bulls will be an action-packed event.
Silver Spurs Rodeo will feature bull riding, bareback bronc riding, saddle bronc riding, barrel racing, tie-down roping, team roping and steer wrestling. In between all the rodeo action, there will be an act by the rodeo clown and the famous and fast Silver Spurs Quadrille team, who perform a square dance on horseback.
The largest rodeo east of the Mississippi is the work of the Silver Spurs Riding Club; an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization started in 1941 by Osceola County ranchers who began the rodeo in 1944, selling war bonds as admission to raise funds for our military.
The Monster Bulls and Silver Spurs Rodeo ticket purchases include admission to the Osceola County Fair, which runs from Feb. 12-21 and is adjacent to the Silver Spurs Arena.
Tickets to Monster Bulls are $20 per adult and children 10 and under are free. For the Silver Spurs Rodeo Friday and Saturday performances, the tickets are $25 per person and children 10 and under are free, while the Silver Spurs Rodeo’s Sunday ticket price is $20 per adult and children 10 and under are free with a paying adult. To minimize touchpoints and control crowd size, limited tickets will be available at the box office and fans are encouraged to purchase online in advance to guarantee seating. Donation tickets are available, and all proceeds will go towards the Silver Spurs Riding Club. Fans can do this at www.SilverSpursRodeo.com.
If fans still want to support the rodeo but are unable to attend or do not feel comfortable in a public setting, the Silver Spurs Riding Club has added a “Donation ticket” which can be purchased online for $20 per ticket. Proceeds from this ticket will go directly to organizations in Osceola County for scholarships, cancer support, veteran needs and more.
All Osceola County students will also receive free admission to the Silver Spurs Rodeo performance on Friday, Feb.19 to celebrate and honor the Osceola County holiday, Rodeo Day.
The health and safety of all performers, partners, fans, and staff remain a top priority for The Silver Spurs Riding Club. To view the Silver Spurs Rodeo Health and Safety Guidelines pertaining to COVID-19 and other facility policies, visit the website at www.SilverSpursRodeo.com.
