Arcadia gears up for its annual All-Florida Championship Rodeo, scheduled from March 7th to 10th, 2024, at the Mosaic Arena. Promising four days of adrenaline-pumping action, the event boasts top-tier cowboys and cowgirls from around the world competing for cash prizes and coveted spots at the national finals.

Established in 1928, the Arcadia Rodeo has evolved into the South’s premier rodeo, attracting multigenerational fans. The event features a variety of thrilling competitions, including barrel racing, steer wrestling, and bull riding, showcasing the finest human and animal talent.

Moreover, the rodeo maintains its tradition of community support by donating proceeds to local nonprofits, benefiting organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and Make-a-Wish Foundation.

In addition to the main events, attendees can enjoy family-friendly entertainment, food vendors, and shopping for western wear. The festivities extend beyond March, with other rodeo events scheduled throughout the year, including the Bulls and Bands night in August and the fall rodeo in October.

For a memorable experience, organizers advise purchasing tickets in advance, arriving early for pre-show entertainment, and embracing the cowboy spirit by dressing appropriately. With its rich history and thrilling spectacles, the Arcadia Rodeo promises an unforgettable experience for rodeo enthusiasts of all ages.

How to Have a Rip-Roaring Time at the Rodeo

  • Buy tickets in advance. The best seats can sell out.
  • Consider splurging on a backrest seat. Only Premium Plus and some Premium seats have backrests (prices range from $55 to $65). If you choose a bleacher seat ($35 to $50), you can bring a seat cushion, but not a stadium seat.
  • Arrive early for the pre-show. Gates open at 11 AM and the pre-rodeo entertainment starts at 1:00 PM.
  • Follow the rules. No pets, coolers, stadium seats, or outside food and beverages (other than water) are allowed in the arena.
