The 64th Buffalo PRCA Championship Rodeo is June 22-23, 2018 and is pouring out the western hospitality on the historic Buffalo Rodeo Grounds located just off Hwy 55 in Buffalo with plenty of entertainment. Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) contestants will compete nightly at 7 p.m. in bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding and timed events.
Shane Martin and his band are a top draw in the Midwest with a unique blend of modern country rock. Martin will perform nightly after the rodeo in the beer garden. Get your tickets in advance for just $12, at the gate $15. From sharing the stage with numerous national acts to captivating audiences at festivals or in a packed venue, Shane Martin concerts are high energy and the crowd is motivated to dance and sing along.
Martin originally from neighboring Elk River, Minn. is excited to play the Buffalo PRCA Championship Rodeo for his first time. “I am super stoked to be performing at the oldest PRCA rodeo in Buffalo, MN June 22 and 23, 2018. I hope to see a ton of my fans ride out and “Keep The Night Alive” for a boot stomping, country-rocking’ good time!” His latest album just happens to be “Keep the Night Alive.”
Rodeo Clown Gizmo McCracken, the 2017 Comedy Act of the Year in the PRCA, will bring his humor and funny antics to the rodeo arena. “I like to keep people looking for me and wondering what I am going to do next,” said Gizmo. His acts are rodeo comedy style and share a high energy. His comedy is clean and family friendly which adds laughs, smirks, and giggles to the rodeo performance.
Rodeo Announcer Davie Kimm returns to the microphone to call the action from horseback during the Barnes PRCA Rodeo. Kimm’s love of rodeo began as a rodeo contestant. First, he joined the Minnesota High School Rodeo Association and competed in rough stock and timed events. His ability to explain to the rodeo fans can be attributed to him being a 4x Great Lakes Circuit Finals qualifier in the saddle bronc before his announcing career began.
Kimm is quick to admit that his wife, Nicky (who handles rodeo music production and sound) is a big part of his continued success. The two of them travel together throughout much of the year. “My goal as a rodeo announcer is to entertain and educate rodeo fans while creating an environment of infectious excitement,” stated Kimm.
Advance Rodeo tickets start at $12 adults, $6 children online and Reserve Seating is $18 and available at the Buffalo Country Store in Buffalo, Minn. only.
