Each March the rodeo comes to town in City Limitless®. Here, the Town of Queen Creek welcomes the Roots N’ Boots Festival celebrating the cowboy culture that surrounds rodeo. This year, the festivities begin on March 11 and for three full days visitors and residents alike will join to celebrate the town’s rural history, culture, and heritage.
One of the main draws of the Roots N’ Boots festival is the PRCA Rodeo. This is an exciting professional rodeo that only comes to City Limitless® once a year. Last year, two of the shows sold out—so it really isn’t a show to miss. This year, there are three chances to see this thrilling show:
- Friday, 3/11, at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, 3/12, at 7 p.m.
- Sunday, 3/13, at 3 p.m.
Book your tickets now, since the rodeo is expected to sell out again!
If the rodeo isn’t up your alley, fret not, cowpokes; the Festival offers barrels upon barrels of entertainment and attractions besides barrel racing and cow roping. One highlight include the Arizona Cowboy Mounted Shooters Association’s competition where sharp-shooters target different objects while on a horse. A true cowboy experience!
The Roots N’ Boots Festival is family-friendly. The Family Rodeo is intended to offer children ages three to 11 the chance to have Western-themed fun with opportunities to meet the animals. Our favorite cowboy kid sport is Mutton Busting, where the goal is for the littlest of cowboys and cowgirls to hang on to a sheep as tightly as possible and ride it for 8 seconds! Another favorite is the Da$h for Ca$h where kiddos chase calves with prizes attached to their tails.
To make attending this awesome weekend getaway easy and breezy for you, we’ve put together a travel package on our website. The Roots N’ Boots Roundup Package will get you two days of Western fun at the festival, and two nights of stay in a beautiful Mesa hotel.
