The Homestead Championship Rodeo is an annual tradition that grew out of a group of seventeen founding members who wanted to showcase this unique western sporting event. It is one of the oldest annual professional sporting events in South Florida and the only PRCA Rodeo in Miami-Dade County. Our rodeo is one of nearly 600 sanctioned annually by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). The PRCA is the largest and oldest rodeo-sanctioning body in the world For more information on the PRCA visit http://prorodeo.com/ and the WPRA

All three of our PRCA Rodeo Performances include the following events: Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Steer Wrestling, Tie-Down Roping, Team-Roping, & Bull Riding plus WPRA Barrel Racing. Also included will be WPRA Junior Division barrel racing which we added to our rodeo in 2013.
