Plan ahead rodeo fans because tickets go on sale next month for the “The Granddaddy of ‘Em All” event in Arcadia.

Tickets sales begin Nov. 14, 2022, for the Arcadia All-Florida Championship Rodeo.

The four-day, family-friendly event kicks off March 9, 2023, running through March 23, at the Mosaic Arena in Arcadia, FL.

Running 95 years now, the Arcadia Rodeo showcases the world’s top athletes in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.

The athletes compete to ride their way to nationals in Las Vegas.

Due to Hurricane Ian impacts, the Arcadia Rodeo Association announced Friday they had to change the March rodeo ticket sale launch to Nov. 14.

Typically, March rodeo ticket sales begin Nov. 1.

Ian was also responsible for the cancellation of the group’s Fall Rodeo, which was set for Oct. 15-16.

Those who bought tickets for the Fall Rodeo will have an opportunity to use them for the March rodeo, or the 2023 Fall Rodeo, but seating may vary from their original purchase.

Representatives will be contacting 2022 Fall Rodeo ticket buyers to discuss their options.

The Arcadia Rodeo is a 501(c)3 organization. For tickets call 1-800-749-7633 or buy them online at
