Featuring only the most jaw dropping, xtreme, action-packed events of rodeo – Barrel Racing, Mutton Busting and the Northern Bull Riding Tour! Get a chance to see some of the fastest barrel racers and best bull riders in the country butting heads and battling it out for cash prizes and the honor of being crowned the Xtreme Event Challenge Champion.
This will be the 13th Annual Xtreme Event Challenge to be held in our outdoor Leo P. Flynn Memorial Arena at McCrossan Boys Ranch. All proceeds will go to support the quality programs for at-risk youth at McCrossan Boys Ranch.
Kicking off the event this year is the Outback Band joining us from Nebraska. From young to old, this band has music you will love! We are excited that our favorite rodeo clown “Toofpik” will be back by popular demand entertaining the crowds with his crazy stunts and jokes and providing fun entertainment for our crowd of all ages.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the gate and there are many opportunities for sponsorships and program ads. Kids 12 and under just $5! We also have many fun vendors to shop from.
