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!
It’s a rodeo and more filled with your favorite events and a whole lot of unexpected. Don your boots and cowboy hat for two-days of rodeo, with one day being an authentic Charreada, a Mexican rodeo. Brought to you by renowned promoter Cotton Rosser and the Flying U Rodeo. Get up close and personal with bull riders, wild broncs, kids’ mutton bustin’, jump motorcycles, Mexican bull fighting and more.
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.
