From May 22-24, The Cowboy Channel will be covering Cave Creek Rodeo Days live from Cave Creek, Arizona. This will be the first PRCA rodeo back since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
If you think you’re excited about rodeo’s return, think about PRCA and The Cowboy Channel!
“We are very excited to ‘Kick Open the Chutes’ and get live PRCA PRORODEO back on The Cowboy Channel and The Cowboy Channel Plus App!” said Jeff Medders, President and General Manager of The Cowboy Channel. “Summer is so important to everyone involved in ProRodeo … cowboys, fans and communities.”
Despite all the excitement, PRCA recognizes the severity of the current pandemic and is taking it seriously. There will be plenty of action in the arena, but stands will be quiet; no audience is permitted at Cave Creek Rodeo Days this year.
In addition, athletes and rodeo staff will be screened for health and will be required to wear masks and socially distance.
“It’s great to have PRORODEO back,” said PRCA CEO George Taylor. “Cave Creek and the PRCA have taken significant precautions in partnership with local and state officials to make the rodeo safe for everyone involved, from the competitors to the contract personnel and production personnel on site from The Cowboy Channel. This is just the beginning. Over the next several weeks we’re going to be rolling into that new sense of normalcy to bring PRORODEO back to the fans, members and communities.”
According to The Cowboy Channel, the rodeo has a record number of entries this year and some big names will be competing, including Shad Mayfield, Nellie Miller, Dona Kay Rule, and several members of the Wright family.
Live coverage of Cave Creek Rodeo Days will start at 10:30 PM EST from May 22-24 with host Justin McKee, and coverage will replay at 8:00 AM EST the day after each performance. The rodeo will also be available for streaming on The Cowboy Channel Plus app.
