This is not your average small town rodeo. In 2015, the completion of the Virginia City Fairgrounds was one of the most significant additions to one of the country’s most historic landmarks since, well, the Comstock Lode. The Virginia City Fairgrounds was built to host concerts, special events, the International Camel & Ostrich Races and most importantly a RODEO!
The Way It Was Rodeo will be produced by The Flying U Rodeo. Established in 1956, Cotton Rosser and his family have worked to make the Flying U one of the most successful stock contracting firms in professional rodeo. Cotton has long been known for his outstanding rodeo productions, including National Finals Rodeo, the Houston Livestock Show, the Grand National Rodeo in San Francisco and the PRCA Wildest Richest Rodeo in the West – The Reno Rodeo just to name a few. With more than three dozen Rodeo’s each year, The Flying U will bring it’s full production to Virginia City this August.

It’s called “The Way It Was,” but this rodeo is unlike anything ever seen on the Comstock before. Saddle up and ride into Virginia City’s Arena & Fairgrounds to see the best rodeo promoter in the country, Cotton Rosser and the Flying U Rodeo, bring their A-list acts for a weekend of rough and tough family fun! Get up close and personal with bull riders, wild broncs, kids’ mutton bustin’ and jump motorcycles and more.
