College National Finals Rodeo

In Wyoming, we know a thing or two about the Western way of life. Around here, rodeo is considered the official state sport so it’s fitting that the Cowboy State plays host to the College National Finals Rodeo (CNFR). 

Each June, Casper welcomes 400+ of the best college and university rodeo athletes from around the country to the Ford Wyoming Center where they’ll go head-to-head to become a national champion as they compete in saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, breakaway roping, goat tying and barrel racing.
