“The Wild West Hits the Streets of Prescott, AZ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

Fun for the whole family. See real cowboys and cowgirls ride their horses in the parade along with Mountain Men, Military Men from all years and branches of the service. Street dancing at night, rodeo at the World's Oldest Rodeo Grounds. Arts and Craft tents are setup in the Courthouse Square with unique and tasteful wares. Awesome food and drink and, of course, shootouts and shady ladies.

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

No place to stay, and the site is a dump. Seat were trashy as was the rest of the rodeo complex.

“don't miss the patriotic presentation on the Plaza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

right after the parade there is a patriotic presentation given by the Potters House Christian Church. It is one of the most moving, well-thought out and wonderfully presented events of the whole Frontier Days weekend.

“MUST SEE EVENT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

When we prepared our schedule for our West Cost trip we definitely wanted to see rodeo. Prescott's Frontier Days met all the criteria (timing, location) so we booked the tickets online. We had no prior experience neither with Prescott nor rodeo.

Prescott and it's Frontier Days are one of the best highlights of our trip. We were surprised with the atmosphere, people hospitality and the fact that the rodeo was not focused on tourists, but on local people and rodeo fans. Rodeo is not only bullriding. We enjoyed all the races and the whole program.

We spent two days in Prescott and really enjoyed all the events related with Frontier Days.
