Silver Spurs Rodeo is a family tradition in Kissimmee, and it returns to the Silver Spurs Arena for its 138th edition the weekend of Feb 17-19, 2017.
Silver Spurs Rodeo is the largest rodeo east of the Mississippi, and is the work of the Silver Spurs Riding Club, an all-volunteer organization started in 1941 by Osceola County ranchers. They began the rodeo in 1944, selling war bonds as admission to raise funds for our military.
The rodeo is still going strong, and offers competitions of various talents, including Bull Riding, Bronc Riding, Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling, and Team Roping, with real rodeo cowboys and cowgirls competing for an entire year of bragging rights, and $70,000 in prize money.
Tickets are $15 per person, with kids 10 and under free. Friday, February 17th, is Rodeo Day in Osceola County, which means all Osceola County students will receive free admission when they present their Osceola County school ID.
Show time are February 17th and 18th at 7:30pm, and February 19th at 2pm.
All Silver Spurs Rodeo tickets include admission to the Osceola County Fair, which runs from through the 19th, adjacent to the arena.
The Silver Spurs Rodeo is held at the Silver Spurs Arena at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee. For more information, or to purchase advance tickets, visit silverspursrodeo.com or call 407-67-RODEO (76336).
