95th La Fiesta de los Vaqueros - Tucson Rodeo
Tucson's annual celebration of the cowboys has been heralded as Southern Arizonas oldest and most celebrated heritage event since its inception in 1925. It's centered around the Tucson Rodeo, one of the top 25 rodeos on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) calendar, at which the sports best cowboys and cowgirls compete in six rodeo performances at Tucson Rodeo Grounds. The fun also includes the Tucson Rodeo Parade, billed as the longest non-motorized (horse-drawn) parade in the world on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020. An estimated 150,000 spectators line the streets along the route or purchase tickets for grandstand seating to see a parade of over 150 western-theme floats and buggies, Mexican folk dancers and marching musical groups.
