World’s Toughest Rodeo Coming to North Carolina Next Month


In one month, the CINCH World’s Toughest Rodeo storms the LVJM Coliseum in Winston-Salem, N.C. on Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21, 2020 (pre-show begins at 6 p.m., show begins at 7:30 p.m.).

A must-see show that is bigger and better than ever, fans can expect the absolute best in cowboy and animal athletes competing to be the “Toughest in the World,” sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. Those competing in the CINCH World’s Toughest Rodeo are proud to be PRORODEO.

Much more than an eight-second ride, this action-packed event will qualify winners to ride in the $2 million American Rodeo in Dallas, as well as the ultimate opportunity to compete at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas for the title of World Champion. Featuring three fan-favorite events including Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, and – the most extreme sport – Bull Riding, twelve contestants will compete for the ultimate chance to come back for the winner-takes-all showdown round. This year’s event will also feature some of the nation’s fastest cowgirls on their very own animal athletes competing against the clock in the Women’s Barrel Racing, and talented specialty entertainers including trick horse extraordinaire Mr. Bojangles, who survived Hurricane Katrina and was rescued by animal trainer and entertainer Jerry Thornton.

Pre-show activities:

The doors open early from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. both nights for a unique pre-show experience (FREE with a ticket) for fans as they get their rodeo on in the Cowboy FunZone.

The pre-show also includes pony rides, behind the scenes opportunities, giveaways, and much more including the chance for fans to sit on a LIVE bull in the chutes and get actual proof with a picture!
