Where can you find steer wrasslin’, calf ropin’, mud bustin’, barrel racin’ and more on a Saturday afternoon? At the 2017 Arizona Black Rodeo of course! This event is one of the more popular events in Arizona and is committed to highlighting the contributions of African-American western heritage alive by offering a fun, family-oriented experience.
Hosted by the Arizona Informant, the Black Rodeo was held at Rawhide in Chandler, AZ and featured nationally known African American rodeo competitors. In addition to the show, guests had the opportunity to shop with several local vendors, hang out with Big Red, mascot of the Arizona Cardinals and meet and greet with the Buffalo Troopers Motorcycle Club.
