Because of unavoidable changes in date, location and contact persons, we cannot guarantee that the information below is absolutely accurate. It is noted where we were unable to verify information for events, but we strongly urge that anyone interested in going to any of these events call the information number or visit the website shown to confirm date, location and admission fees.

This page is primarily a list of New Mexico rodeos, but because the Navajo Reservation covers parts of four states, we also list Navajo Reservation rodeos in Arizona, Utah and Colorado.

We will update this calendar as additional information becomes available. We are happy to answer rodeo calendar questions by email, but if you would like more specific information on an event than is given below, we suggest that you call the information number provided or visit the web site listed.
