Saddle up for the Williams Labor Day Rodeo
See the nation's best women in action as part of the weekend's festivities Sept. 1-2
WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Rodeo has been a part of Williams heritage since the early 1900s, with the Williams Labor Day Rodeo playing a leading role. The Slash M Rodeo Co. is proud to produce this time-honored tradition in the wonderful community of Williams.
"This is one of the oldest sports still going," Labor Day Rodeo Producer Scott McDaniel said. "It's one of the oldest sports still going and it's live, unrehearsed entertainment."
Rodeo events will kick off on Sept. 1-2, and this year the Women's Professional Rodeo will be the highlight of the weekend.
The rodeo will include barrel racing, breakaway, team roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc, bareback riding and the ever popular wild horse race and bull riding.
"The western way of life is here," McDaniel said. "The town is small, the people that live here support it, no matter who does it, it's always had a following."
There is still time to be a sponsor of "Williams' rodeo." Sponsors are what make this celebrated cowboy tradition a success, and individuals have the option to chose their level of sponsorship.
Gates open each day at 11 a.m. and tickets are available at the gates.
General Admission is $10 and kids 5-years-old and under are free.
Location: The Williams Rodeo Grounds at 800 Rodeo Rd. There will be free parking at the grounds.
