Fans of all ages can enjoy edge-of-your-seat action, eight seconds at a time at Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo. The night will feature fan-favorite events: bull riding, saddle bronc riding and bareback riding with the top two riders competing a second time in the thrilling “Winner Take All Showdown Round,” as well as women's barrel racing.

In addition to outstanding competition, fans will enjoy mutton bustin’ action, featuring young contestants from the Triangle area and beyond atop a speedy sheep. “Danger Dave” Whitmoyer will bring the comedy like no other and entertain with his rodeo clown antics.

For the first time in Raleigh, Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo will feature bull jumping. Professional bull jumper Emmanuel Lataste of Dex, France, will show off his unbelievable athletic talent and nerves of steel as he takes extreme sport to another level. Bull jumping, a sport derived from a southwestern French tradition called “Course Landaise,” will include more than 15 jumps and maneuvers over a charging Mexican fighting bull.

Prior to Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo, ticket holders are invited to arrive early for a free preshow event on the dirt from 6:00-7:00PM. Enjoy pony rides, meet and greets with cowboys and entertainers, photo opportunities in clown barrels and atop “Midnight” the live bull in the bucking chutes, and more.
