Jim Bowie Days Rodeo and Celebration Bowie Texas


The Jim Bowie Days Rodeo is one of the largest rodeos in Texas that encourages amateur athletes to compete with UPRA sanctioned professionals.  With the fantastic support that we receive from our community and premier sponsors, Patterson CJD of Bowie and The City of Bowie, we are enjoying our 5th year of UPRA sanctioning.  

We are very proud of the added money that we have been able to award our competitors each year.  Last year $10,000 was spread between the events.  Books will be open Monday and Tuesday June 22nd & 23rd from 10am to 7pm.  Registration is via the UPRA NextGen app.  For more info on the app, please check out the details at http://www.urodeo.com/nextgen_rodeo.htm .   We are proud to announce that this year's added money is still  $11,000!

We are honored to have Mitch Terrell and TNT Rodeo providing our rough stock again this year and believe that we will continue to provide an amazing show for one and all.  Thursday will kick off our UPRA events with Slack followed by our Presentation events on Friday and Saturday.  Friday's Rodeo will be followed by a free dance with music provided by an artist to be named soon.  Saturday's Rodeo will be followed by a concert performace by Richard Beverate (ticket information coming soon).
