These professional athletes are vying for bragging rights, national titles and prize money. Close to $1.4 million is up for grabs this year.
“Each and every year, CFR attracts tens of thousands of spectators and over 100 competitors,” said Dale Leschiutta, Canadian Professional Rodeo Association President. “We’re looking forward to another successful event this year and we hope you’ll all be there to experience rodeo at its best!”
In addition to the thrill and excitement of the CFR, there will be great entertainment both in the arena and live on stage at The Buckle – the official party headquarters of Canadian Finals Rodeo presented in part by Global TV Edmonton. The Buckle is the place to be for music, food, drinks, and fun from November 10-12 at the Edmonton EXPO Centre.
