Immediately following the PRCA performances on Friday and Saturday, the
crowd-pleasing Ring of Fear offers a thrill to participants and spectators
alike. Held directly in front of the grandstand, six amateur ‘bullfighters’
are pitted against a PRCA fighting bull. Each person must remain in their
designated circle as the bull charges, with contestants being eliminated
if they leave their circle to avoid the bull—a half-ton of athletic, angry
hooves and horns. The last man standing in his circle (or lying,
as the case may be) wins $500. Exciting and unpredictable, the Ring of Fear
is yet another unique aspect of the Silver State Stampede.
Participants must be at least 21 years of age.
Each night following the
conclusion of the rodeo performance, the Jeff Palmer Band will strike it
up next to the outdoor Cowboy Bar, located to the south of the
grandstands. Dance under the stars and mingle with rodeo contestants
“Where the Sidewalk Ends and the West Begins.”
