EXHIBITION OPENING: To the Rodeo, Pardner!

June 18 at 10:00 am 5:00 pm

Join us for opening day of the Museum’s newest exhibit: “To the Rodeo, Pardner!”

This year, the Prescott area will welcome rodeo fans from around the world to the annual
celebration of its western heritage, Prescott Frontier Days®. The World’s Oldest Rodeo® sits as the jewel in this crown, and continues to amaze young and old with its displays of ranch-style thrill and skill.

The exhibit celebrates Prescott’s long rodeo tradition and the 50th anniversary of Prescott-set Steve McQueen film “Junior Bonner.” Filmed in Prescott in 1971, the movie follows the story of a rodeo cowboy (Steve McQueen) who returns to his hometown of Prescott for the rodeo, with the self-set task of overcoming an ornery bull named Sunshine.

Opening to the public Saturday, June 18, the exhibit will invite visitors to engage with the history and tradition of Prescott’s July 4th celebration, and appreciate the World’s Oldest Rodeo® as more than an annual event, but as a livelihood for the rodeo cowboys, community of Prescott, and others. It’s “To The Rodeo, Pardner!”
