If you go yeehaw for rodeos, there’s no way you’d miss The American Rodeo in Arlington. The annual event upped the stakes in 2022 with a prize pot of $3 million! This year, the rodeo’s got a new home too – the Globe Life Field! Here’s all you need to know about attending the much-anticipated event.  

Hailed as one of the best western-style entertainment events in the country, The American Rodeo is organized by Teton Ridge. In 2022, they teamed up with Professional Bull Riders (PBR) to showcase two American western sporting events in one weekend. American Rodeo returns in 2023 with even more excitement – four main competitive events including the debut of The American Performance Horseman, star-studded entertainment shows, and more. 

What is The American Rodeo event?  

The American Rodeo is an annual rodeo competition held during the first weekend in March at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. However, from 2023, the event has moved to the Globe Life Field where the Rangers play. Every year, since 2014, rodeo professionals, cowboys, and cowgirls take the dirt to rope and race towards a winner-take-all showdown. 2023 marks the 10th year anniversary of popular event.   

The competitions span more than 8 rodeo disciplines, including Tie-Down Roping, Breakaway Roping, Barrel Racing, Team Roping, Rough Stock, and Steer Wrestling. Winners of each discipline also stand the chance to compete for the $1 million bonus this year. 

What is The American Rodeo 2023 schedule?  

Doors open at the Globe Life Field in Arlington for American Rodeo 2023 at 4.15 pm on March 11, 2023. Round 1 (for top 10 from each discipline) is from 5.45 pm – 8.30 pm. Multi-platinum-selling Cody Johnson will then takeover the halftime show, followed by Round 2 (for top 4) from 9 pm – 10 pm.

If you are driving to the rodeo, you’ll need a parking space for at least six hours. Event parking at Globe Life Field will be limited and finding your spot at the last-minute is a hassle. You might also have to pay higher parking rates due to the demand. So, make sure to sort out your parking space before the event day.
