Need to Know:
Download the Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive application online and send in your completed application to the Reno Rodeo Association. The cost for the five day cattle drive is $2,000. There is a $1,000 processing fee if the organization receives a written request for a refund before the deadline. You’ll need to make hotel and airline reservations by early February. The last day to request a refund is mid-March (less $1,000 processing fee.) Please check the Reno Rodeo Association website for current pricing, as rates and dates change yearly. Please note, I DO NOT have any affiliation with the Reno Rodeo nor the Reno Rodeo Cattle Drive. Please do not ask me to make a reservation on your behalf.
Insider Tip: Billed as the wildest, richest rodeo in the west, the Reno Rodeo takes place annually in June. The 10 day event is a Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) sanctioned event. In addition to the cattle drive leading up to the start of the event, there are plenty of family-friendly rodeo activities.
