Champions are made in Casper.

For twenty five years, the College National Finals Rodeo has made its home and legacy in Casper, Wyoming. Nowhere else in the world can you find the most elite college athletes and animals going head to head in the dirt, competing to be crowned the best. More than a rodeo, CNFR is a celebration of our western tradition and athletic excellence that once you’ve experienced, you’ll never forget.

The CNFR is the best of the best in college rodeo. It is where the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association crowns individual event champions in saddle bronc riding, bare back riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, and goat tying. National team championships are also awarded to both men’s and women’s teams. Over 400 cowboys and cowgirls from over 100 universities and colleges compete in Casper each year. Contestants compete all year in one of the NIRA’s 11 regions for a chance to rope or ride at the CNFR.

The top three students in each event, and top two men’s and women’s teams from the NIRA’s 11 regions will qualify for the CNFR.


Plan on heading to each CNFR performance early so you have time to check out the tradeshow. A variety of vendors will be on-site showing and selling their products and services. Explore a variety of western hats, clothing, and accessories for men and women, along with leather works, jewelry, belt buckles, metal works, décor, and more.

Tradeshow admission is included with your performance ticket. The tradeshow opens for Sunday’s Bulls, Broncs & Breakaways at 12 pm; Monday & Tuesday morning Slack rounds at 6:30 am; Tuesday through Saturday’s nightly Performances at 5:30 pm.
