Bull Riding Challenge: A buckin' good time!!! And that's no bull...

Get ready for a Wild West Weekend in Rochester, Minnesota! The 20th Annual Valley Featherlite's Bull Riding Challenge will be held on Friday & Saturday nights, April 8 & 9, 2016. This year promises to be more explosive, exciting and spectacular than ever! The doors open at 6:00pm and the action starts at 7:30pm. As usual, it will be a thrilling weekend featuring some of the best cowboys in the sport of Bull Riding and some of the best bulls in the country. We hope you can join us as we celebrate 20 years of bringing great family entertainment to Rochester.

Preferred Seating
This year, if you purchase a ticket in advance at any of the pre-sale ticket locations, you will receive preferred seating - which is a seat in one of the two side bleacher sections (see Seating Chart). These seats will be available for you until 7:00pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 6:00pm. You are not required to sit in these areas; you may sit in any other area. At 7:00pm, the preferred seating areas will be open to anyone looking for a seat that has a general admission ticket. Again - you must be in the arena by 7:00pm to claim your preferred seat. There are a limited number of these preferred seats and all are on sale at the pre-sale locations until the end of business on Thursday, April 9th. Once these tickets have sold out, we will be selling tickets for all other seating areas in the arena (see Seating Chart). These tickets will be on sale at the Graham Arena Ticket office on the day of the show, starting at 4:00pm each day.

We will still offer our Overflow Video Viewing
Checkout our "Overflow Video Viewing" area. We offer live video of the event on a huge screen in the arena connected to the main arena. There will be seating, concessions and bar service in this area. If you want to get away from the crowd for awhile or want a better seat to see the action, check it out.

Ticket prices:
Adult $20
Children $10 (ages 1 - 12, only infants are free)

On Friday night, following the Bull Riding Challenge, there will be a dance at Wicked Moose Bar & Grill, featuring Jana Anderson.

Saturday night following the Bull Riding Challenge we are proud to have the band, Lost Highway. The Saturday night dance will be held at Graham Arena 2 (which is connected to the bull riding arena). If you show you bull riding ticket stub, the cost of admission to the dance is only $8. Without a bull riding ticket stub, the cost is $10.

Friday Night is Tough Enough to Wear Pink Night. Please wear something pink to Tough Enough to Wear Pink night and help raise awareness of breast cancer and also support Join the Journey, a local nonprofit committed to supporting breast cancer survivors in our community. For every person wearing pink, sponsors will donate money to Join the Journey. For more information about Join the Journey and its many programs and services for breast cancer survivors, visit www.jointhejourney.us.

Stick around for the autograph session after each performance.

Both nights we will have the fan favorite Mexican Poker, brought to you by Truckin' America. If you're interested in being one of the players for the Mexican Poker, sign up at the announcers table at the event. There is no pre-registration.

We'll also have the Mutton Bustin' again this year, brought to you by Rochester Pet & Country Store. Click on the Mutton Bustin' tab above for more information.
