World’s Toughest Rodeo Stampedes into Raleigh

O Clovis

Top cowboys prove their grit in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding at the World’s Toughest Rodeo Jan. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at PNC Arena in Raleigh. All contestants compete once, with the top two in each event returning for a head-to-head championship.

The American-style bull-fighting portion of the event pits rodeo clowns against specially bred fighting bulls in a scored competition with a mission to get as close to the bulls as possible without getting hooked.

Kids can meet some of the cowboys and cowgirls, as well as the rodeo clown, prior to the event.

PNC Arena is located at 1400 Edwards Mill Rd., Raleigh. Visit or call 800-745-3000 to purchase tickets ($28-$75).
