The Caldwell Night Rodeo has received no shortage of accolades during its 83-year run. The five-night shindig has been repeatedly nominated by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association as the country's top large outdoor rodeo, and was named one of the 10 best rodeos in the West by Real Time Cowboy magazine. According to American Cowboy Magazine, Caldwell Night Rodeo is one of the 101 best events in the West.
The CNR features seven acts each night and brings in more than 600 contestants and 45,000 fans for hours of bull riding, steer wrestling, team and tie-down roping, barrel racing and a corral-ful of other events. So, whether you're just curious what all the fuss is about, or you're an aficiona-rodeo, it's time to saddle up your inner cowboy or cowgirl and trot on out to the CNR.
