The California Rodeo Salinas is an annual four day event that starts on the third Thursday of July. The Rodeo features action packed performances and is the largest Rodeo in California and one of the top 20 Rodeos in the US, out of over 600 professional rodeos! Top cowboys and cowgirls travel here to compete for not only money, but also our coveted silver and gold prize buckle. Action takes place simultaneously on the track and in the arena. There is something for everyone at the California Rodeo including a kids corral, shopping, food, a saloon and a cantina, rodeo clowns and other entertaining track acts along with the traditional rodeo events in the arena. All ages love the show and tickets start at only $7 for kids and $14 for adults. Parking is only $10. You cannot attend another sporting event at such a reasonable price and get a full day/ night of entertainment for the whole family! It's a prestigious event on the Central Coast with over 100 years of history and tradition!
