SANDPOINT — From bucking broncos to wrestling steers to roping, there will be no shortage of action at the Sandpoint PRCA Rodeo today and Saturday.

The Sandpoint PRCA is held at the Bonner County Fairgrounds. On both days, the gates open at 6:30 p.m.; the first chute opens at 7:30 p.m. and events will last until roughly 10 p.m.

The Sandpoint rodeo will consist of events including, but not limited to, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing, breakaway roping and team roping. Food trucks, vendors and a beer garden will be on site.

In addition to the rodeo, there will also be a Rascal Rodeo on Saturday at 10 a.m. The Rascal Rodeo is an adaptive rodeo for cowboys of all ages with special needs.

Miss Sandpoint Rodeo, Maddie Gunter, has been busy all year long meeting with rodeo fans, sponsors, raising funds and connecting with other rodeos in the area. Gunther has been involved with the Bonner County 4-H program for 10 years and is living out her dream of being a rodeo queen; this year is her second year in the position.

The Sandpoint Rodeo Committee has been hard at work making sure the community will be able to enjoy a top-tier PRCA rodeo this weekend.

To purchase tickets, visit the Sandpoint Rodeo or Bonner County Fair official websites. Do not buy tickets from third-party resellers. Tickets are $17 for all and seating is first-come, first-served. Tickets will be available at the gate until sold out.
