NOTE: This show was originally scheduled for Jan. 7, but has been moved due to the threat of winter weather. Tickets for the originally scheduled date will be honored at the new date. Fans unable to attend the rescheduled event can obtain a refund at their original point of purchase beginning Monday, Jan. 9 at 10 a.m.

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, fans are invited to arrive early for a free pre-show event on the dirt; doors will open at 6 p.m. 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.

Courtesy of WRAL-TV and FOX50, Kids 12 and under will receive 1/2 price tickets on regularly priced seats (excluding $75.00 seats). Must be accompanied by an adult ticket.
