It’s back! The 35th Annual Cave Creek Fiesta Days Rodeo is gearing up to provide all the Wild West entertainment you could possibly want.

A golf tournament and dinner kick off the event on Wednesday, March 20. Festivities start up again Friday, March 22, and run through the weekend with performances from professional rodeo cowboys, rodeo dances and live music. There’s also a Mutton Bustin’ contest, in which kids get the chance to ride sheep and see how long they can hang on.

The event takes place at Cave Creek Memorial Arena, 37201 N. 28th St. Admission is $12-$18. Parking is free, but attendees are asked to bring non-perishable food donations to support the Foothills Food Bank. To buy tickets and see the full schedule, visit
