World’s Toughest Rodeo

Saturday, January 12, 2013

World’s Toughest Rodeo stampedes into Columbus on Saturday, Jan. 12 at Nationwide Arena starting at 7:30PM. The toughest cowboys in the world show off their skill in action-packed events that will entertain the whole family. Before the rodeo, children are invited to enjoy the "Cowboy Kids' Zone" where real life cowboys teach these future cowpokes how to properly lasso a steer, barrel race and even clown around.

A new feature for 2013 is the introduction of American style bull fighting, where the rodeo clowns or “cowboy lifesavers” pit their agility and skill against specially bred rodeo “fighting” bulls. The competition is scored and the object is to get as close as possible to these fast & cantankerous bulls, without getting gored or “hooked” as they call it in rodeo vernacular –it is sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats.

There is something for everyone – from barrel racing cowgirls to the wild antics of the rodeo clowns. World’s Toughest Rodeo is an exciting spectacle families won’t soon forget.

92.3 WCOL exclusively welcomes Country Artist Randy Houser in concert at the World's Toughest Rodeo. The concert is right after the rodeo perfomance and is included in your ticket price.
