The 63rd Annual Rodeo de Santa Fe is set for June 20-23th, 2012
It's rodeo time again in Santa Fe! The Rodeo de Santa Fe begins today and runs though Saturday. As a PRCA sanctioned event it draws almost 600 PRCA contestants. This is not your Ma and Pa rodeo, either. You can expect to see several well-known cowboys and cowgirls, including World Champions Taos Muncy, Trevor Brazile and JW Harris.
This year's rodeo queen is Alexandria (Alex) Layne Tapia. Alex is the 22 year old daughter of Toni Tapia and the late Michael J. Tapia Sr. She was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She is currently a Crimson Scholar at New Mexico State University majoring in both Government and History.
Rodeo de Santa Fe is fun for the entire family--a carnival midway, food concessions, mutton bustin' and more can all be found.
Individual tickets start at $10.00 and up to $27.00 (prices include parking). Rodeo grounds are located at 3237 Rodeo Road, Santa Fe, NM.
