The RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo is a national championship rodeo in which your top 200+ cowboys and cowgirls from across the US and Mexico will compete in each of the seven traditional rodeo events for $1 million in cash and prizes at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, Florida. Contestants must qualify to attend and compete. The RNCFR is run tournament-style. Each contestant will get to participate in two preliminary rounds. The top eight in each event will advance to the semifinals, during which all scores and times will be erased. From there, the top four contestants will compete in the sudden death round of the finals. One champion will be crowned in each rodeo event, and one contestant will become the all-around champion!
The RNCFR takes place in Kissimmee, Florida at the Silver Spurs Arena annually each spring. The 2017 RNCFR will be taking place April 6-9, 2017.
Adults are $20 for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances. Adults are $25 for the Sunday performance.
Children 12 and under are free at all performances.
Seniors 55+ will receive $3 off each performance.
At our Friday performance, all active and retired military personnel are free with valid ID.
Yes, parking is free!
The RNCFR Tailgate Experience is free and open to the public! We will have live bands, DJs, a dance floor, rodeo games for kids, bounce houses, food trucks, bars, exhibits and more. This is open before and after each performance, except for Thursday, April 6, 2017.
Though we love to highlight the champions coming to town, we will not know who exactly will be advancing to the RNCFR until the last circuit final rodeo has taken place. The circuit finals end in January. Once we have the official results, we will be releasing those contestants’ names closer to the event. Please keep in mind that no-shows do happen from time to time. Contestants may qualify to attend and compete, but some might choose not to, or some experience injury and cannot participate.
