Russell Dickerson and Aaron Watson to Perform at 105th Clovis Rodeo

The PBR Bull Riders will hit the dirt in Clovis to open the rodeo on Thursday, April 25 followed by Country Music chart climber Russell Dickerson in concert.  One of country music’s most talked-about new talents and the voice behind the smash single “Yours,” a stunning ballad that’s racked up over 33 million streams to date on Spotify, he’s been on the Hot Country, Country Gold Playlists and more for over a year, since being aired to country radio in 2018.

Friday night, April 26 will open three days of PRCA Pro Rodeo action followed by country music fan favorite Aaron Watson in concert.  Watson continues to dominate as a true independent in the country music arena.   The 2017 album Vaquero launched into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and at #2 on the Top Country Albums chart.  His tribute song to World Champion Bull Rider, Lane Frost entitled July in Cheyenne is sure to be a Clovis Rodeo fan favorite.  Lane Frost is the bull rider depicted in the centennial bronze statue at the front of the Clovis Rodeo grounds.  

Two more days of Professional Rodeo action with some of the sport’s top cowboys and cowgirls will follow along with the popular Clovis Rodeo parade on Saturday, April 27.

The Clovis Rodeo Plans for the Future

New Entrance for the Rodeo Grounds and More Rodeo in 2020

The dedicated volunteers who make sure the Clovis Rodeo tradition remains a part of the community’s future are hard-at-work putting the finishing touches on this year’s 105th Clovis Rodeo to be held April 25-28, 2019.  The same group of volunteers are also busy planning for next year’s rodeo.  Always making sure the rodeo grows and gives back to others, while still maintaining the community’s western traditions and the “Clovis Way of Life.”

Kicking things off right for 2020 will be a new entrance for the Clovis Rodeo grounds that will still be off of Clovis Avenue but more in line with 7th Street and where the Centennial Bronze statue stands.  On Friday, March 29 Clovis residents will see the old gas station building in front of the grounds raised to make-way for the new entrance that will include four traffic lanes into the rodeo parking lot, creating a more accessible, safer entry and exit for rodeo guests.  A new digital message board along Clovis Avenue will be a part of the improvements.

In 2020 the Clovis Rodeo will also be adding a performance day to the scheduled line-up for the 106th Clovis Rodeo that will now take place April 22-26, 2020.  Making one of the top rodeos in the nation a five-day event.  Next year the Professional Bull Riding will take place on Wednesday, April 22 followed by FOUR DAYS of PRCA Rodeo action!  The concerts following the rodeo performances will remain on Thursday and Friday nights.  The schedule of all other rodeo events such as the parade and dance will remain as currently scheduled on the Saturday of rodeo week.

The Clovis Rodeo Congratulates Larry Cowger

Grand Marshal of the 105th Clovis Rodeo

Leading the 105th Clovis Rodeo parade on Saturday, April 27 will be Grand Marshal Larry Cowger riding the Old Town Clovis Fire Engine.  It is a fitting tribute for Cowger, who spent 31 years with Cal Fire.  Always there to serve and protect his community, Larry is admired for being a dedicated volunteer member of the Clovis Rodeo Association.

“When you need something done, you call Larry,” said Ken Elliott, President of the Clovis Rodeo Association.  “He is a dedicated volunteer, past board member and supporter of our Western heritage.  Whether in his career as a fire fighter or as a valued volunteer member of the Clovis Rodeo Association, we are proud to salute our friend as the Grand Marshal of the 105th Clovis Rodeo.”
