This year’s NFR will be held in Arlington, Texas. This is the first time the event will take place in Texas after it was moved from Las Vegas due to Covid-19 fears. The National Finals Rodeo event will run for ten nights at the Globe Life Field, outside Dallas.
While attending the Rodeo, there are several things you can engage in. Let us look at some of them;
The Wrangler National Finals Performance
Of course, this is the actual purpose of the whole event. While you are at the Thomas and Mack, you will have no option other than this exciting event that is sure to grab each and every NFR attendee’s attention. The NFR features excellent performances and music and a rodeo show of your lifetime. While it will be broadcast on TV, do not miss out on a chance to catch all the action live as they happen. If you are yet to grab a ticket, get one from the site as soon as you can, and you can also access the schedule and other important updates.
A trip to the Wrangler NFR is not complete without a trip to Cowboy Christmas. It features over 300 exhibitors and is free for attendance daily between 9 am to 5 pm. While attending it, you can get autographs from some of the most famous athletes in the rodeo world or get some food and drinks at the Coors Rodeo Saloon.

Junior World Finals
Presented by YETI, the junior world finals is one of the most exciting competitions at the Wrangler NFR. The competition features over 700 young contestants competing in the same events as their professional counterparts. This year’s event has the prize of a new trailer by RodeoRigs.com, and this has gotten the participants a bit excited and awaiting the competition.

There are a lot of exciting concerts to look out for while the NFR takes place. And for most, you are not parting with a penny. Popular musical legends performing at this year’s WNFR include Shania Twain, George Strait, Gary Allan, and many more. Get the full list and information on concerts.
Bullfighters Only Texas Championship
Last year’s event was aptly named “Bullfighters Only Las Vegas Championship,” but the change of venue led to a name change as well. It will run from 5th to 14th and will be live at 2 pm daily at a venue that will be later announced. It is pegged as the world’s top freestyle bullfighter, and the winner will be crowned the BFO World Champion and claim the prize money of over $150,000. You can get your tickets as well as further information from this.
The World Famous Benny Binion’s Bucking Horse and Bull Sale
Benny Binion played a massive role in getting the WNFR to Las Vegas in 1985, and we expect with the move to Texas, he will play a role just as big. The sale, which will be on from Dec. 5 and 6th, will feature PRCA’s Permit member of the Year Challenge, which is made up of the Top 5 PRCA Money Earners on their permit in all PRCA Rodeo Events in a two-round competition.
Presented by Ariat, the world series of Team Roping will make its mark at the WNFR. Its finale is the richest roping event globally and is also the second richest equestrian related event worldwide. Catch all the roping fun in Texas.
Ames Cake Tasting
Ames cake has for years participated in the WNFR providing the ceremonial cake as well as a stand for all cake lovers to enjoy a bite while they are competing. If you have a ticket or mean to attend, ensure to pick out your favorite sugary bundle at the Ames Cake stand within the arena.
Recognized as the top Rodeo event in the world, the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo is a must-attend event. It not only offers exciting fun for rodeo lovers but sports, music lovers, and revelers after a good time. Get your ticket, and buckle up for a Texan rodeo!
