It’s a rodeo filled with your favorite events and a whole lot of the unexpected. Don your boots and cowboy hats for two-days of rodeo, including a long-horn cattle drive down C Street, a mutton busting tournament and the Fiesta Del Charro, a Mexican rodeo. The Virginia City Rodeo is brought to you by renowned promoter Cotton Rosser and the Flying U Rodeo. Get up close and personal with bull riders, wild broncs, kids’ mutton busting, Mexican bullfighting and more.

A cattle drive down C Street, the town’s main drag, takes place Saturday, leading the stars of the show to the Virginia City Arena & Fairgrounds.

Following the cattle drive, the event start is cued by a parachute jumper and the first day of a kid’s mutton bustin’ tournament begins. The top performers from Saturday have a chance to claim a golden belt buckle during Sunday’s inaugural Virginia City Mutton’ Bustin’ Tournament of Champions. All regional winners and participants are encouraged to enter. 

On Sunday, it’s fiesta time. The inaugural Fiesta Del Charro rodeo includes Latin traditions such as a Charro vs bucking horse competition, Charro Trick Roping and an escarmusa, a Mexican drill team.
