The Annual Montana Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals

The 35th Anniversary of the Montana Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals will be held in Great Falls on January 10, 11 and 12, 2014.

About the Finals

The Montana Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals are held in Great Falls at the Montana Expo Park in January. Montana's best PRCA Pro Rodeo contestants competed against each other and put their skills on the line against some of Montana's finest PRCA rodeo stock. Circuit titles are on the line as the top cowboys and cowgirls vie for year end titles.

As the three performances play out during the circuit finals, the year end titles will be decided on the last performance of rodeo on Sunday. Montana Circuit contestants who win either the year-end title or the average title at the circuit finals also qualify for the Ram National Circuit Finals held in Oklahoma City, OK.

A Montana tradition, the selection of Miss Rodeo Montana is based on horsemanship, appearance and personality competition with other finalists from across the Big Sky State. Miss Rodeo Montana serves as a vibrant, colorful goodwill ambassador of rodeo, working with PRCA rodeos to keep our western heritage and the rodeo industry alive and flourishing.

Join your friends before and after the finals at the "Long Branch". It's located at the west side of the arena. Featuring a western rodeo atmosphere, with lively refreshments and big-screen closed-circuit television so you don't miss any of the Finals action.
