Puyallup Pro Rodeo Justin Boots Playoffs, Presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts: Sept. 9-11. Join the Puyallup Fair in welcoming the top cowboys and cowgirls in the country when they compete in the Justin Boots Playoffs Rodeo Tour, September 9-11. Each of the 24 competitors in each event will be vying for a part of the $540,000+ purse, the largest in the Pacific Northwest. The Pro Rodeo will be held at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; with finals on Sunday at 1 p.m. Music superstar Joe Nichols will perform after the 6:30 p.m. rodeo on Friday night.
Put on your boots, chaps, and cowboy hats for the 6:30 p.m. rodeo on Saturday followed by Ricochet in concert and Dancin’ in the Dirt. This event is a separate ticket event ($20) and will be held in the Grandstand infield (21 years or older only). Dance the night away to Ricochet, sample some appetizers and beverages, and learn some roping tricks from cowboys.
Since the Sunday 1 p.m. Puyallup Finals are on September 11th, members of the military and emergency responders will be recognized at the rodeo in recognition of the 10th anniversary of this day in history. The Sunday rodeo includes two rodeos in one, with a traditional rodeo at first, followed by the finals, which features the top athletes from the past four performances. Each is vying to move on to the next round in Omaha, just one step from the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas this December.
The Puyallup Rodeo is something you should not miss. Being one of the top five rodeos in the country, this year’s Playoffs are sure to impress!
