American Royal Rodeo

May 5, 2022 - May 7, 2022

The American Royal Rodeo returns to Kansas City May 5-7, 2022 for multiple evenings of rodeo action by the top cowboys and cowgirls from around the country after a two-year hiatus due to Covid precautions. The PRCA-sanctioned ProRodeo will hit the dirt each night at 7:30 p.m. in the American Royal Complex, featuring bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, bull riding and much more.

The American Royal is hosting free entertainment before and after each night’s rodeo performance, themed to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, National Nurses Day and the Kentucky Derby. Starting at 5 p.m. on May 5 and 6, and 1 p.m. on May 7, a pre-party with food, drinks, and games will be open to the public and feature a local marketplace highlighting Kansas City artisans, boutiques, and food vendors. Following the rodeo performances nightly at 9:30 p.m., the beer garden will be filled with live music from local bands, including Sons of Sterling on May 5, Travis Marvin on May 6, and The Cowardly Lions on May 7.

Tickets for rodeo performances can be purchased at americanroyal.com/rodeo.
