Li’l Buckaroo Rodeo
One of the highlights of the Arizona National Livestock Show is our Li’l Buckaroo Rodeo where boys and girls ages 4 to 6 have the chance to compete like real cowboys and cowgirls. Watch these little buckaroos ride wild and woolly sheep across the arena in the hopes of winning the go-round and moving on to the finals.

Each day the top two of each age group are selected and then return to compete in the finals for the coveted title of Li’l Buckaroo Champion of their age group. Even though only one contestant goes home as champion, each contestant will go home with a prize for their courageous effort.

Entries open for this contest on December 27 and close one hour prior to the performance. Entry fee is $20 and must be paid in cash at the time of entry. A maximum of 40 entries will be accepted for December 29 and December 30 performances. Riders can weigh no more than 60 pounds and will be weighed just prior to riding. Entry fees are non-refundable. All contestant parents must sign a liability waiver. Entries taken at the ANLS Office beginning Dec. 27 and then entries will be taken at the Li’l Buckaroo Arena on December 29 from 11:00 a.m. – noon. Entries close at noon on December 29. If a contestant is selected as a finalist, they will return to ride in the Li’l Buckaroo Finals.
