Grab your boots and join us for the 64th annual American Royal ProRodeo!


Come early for the Miss Rodeo Missouri pageant and watch as contestants compete in extemporaneous speaking and modeling. Then watch who will be crowned 2013 Miss Rodeo Missouri in Hale Arena on Saturday night before the rodeo.  Do you know a little girl that has always wanted to be a rodeo queen? Come watch and interact with the Miss Rodeo Sweethearts as they compete in stick horse races, modeling and answer questions.

Before each rodeo performance the festival area will be packed with family fun activities, including a bounce house, facepainting, stick horses races, roping, mechanical bull, petting zoo, the Budweiser Clydesdales, and everyone’s favorite mutton bustin’.  Kids under the age of 7 or 60 lbs. can ride the sheep and have a chance to ride in Hale arena during the PRCA rodeo!

Each night the rodeo will offer all of your favorite events, including bull riding, barrel racing, bareback riding, and team roping.  Award winning rodeo clown Keith Isley will keep you laughing and entertained through the performances. 

After the rodeo it’s time for the adults to play in the Crown Royal After Party! The Outlaw Junkies will be playing Friday night and Edge of Forever will play Saturday after the rodeo in the Crown Royal After Party in Governor’s Expo.  Join the Crown Royal girls for dancing, drinks and prizes. Make sure you wear your boots to dance all night!

This event will be the last PRCA rodeo of the 2013 season, making Kansas City a must-stop for ProRodeo's best! Come to the Crown Royal After Party to get autographs from your favorite cowboys and cowgirls!

Award Winning Rodeo  

In 2012, the Women's Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) awarded the American Royal the Justin Boots Best Footing Award. This award is voted on by the WPRA barrel racers and given to the rodeo that provides the best footing at their event.
The 2011 American Royal ProRodeo was awarded the PRCA “Remuda” Award. The prestigious award, created by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) in 2004, is given to the organization which provides the most elite pen of rodeo stock. The American Royal joins an elite group of the top rodeos who have received this award. The rodeo was also one of five finalists nominated for the coveted PRCA Large Indoor Rodeo of the Year.
