2023 Parade Theme:

“Dances with Bulls”

The Prescott Frontier Days® – World’s Oldest Rodeo® proudly presents the 136th  Annual Rodeo Parade held in downtown Prescott over the 4th of July weekend! This year’s rodeo theme is, “Dances With Bulls”, celebrating the skill of the rodeo bull fighter (sometimes mistaken for rodeo clowns)!

The Rodeo Parade is a wonderful tradition which celebrates our rich western history, right here in Prescott, Arizona! We hope you will join us and help celebrate this amazing tradition!

Grand Marshal

This year, our Parade Grand Marshal is bullfighter Quirt Hunt. Quirt started his bullfighting career in high school and has been keeping bull riders out of harm’s way at the Prescott Frontier Days Rodeo for 20 years. Bullfighting is an iconic part of the rodeo culture that requires skill, courage, and athleticism. Every year Quirt Hunt puts on a spectacular show of exceptional talent, distracting bulls with his amazing skills, leading them away from the bull riders who are scrambling to safety. We appreciate Quirt taking the bull by the horns every single year and we are honored to have him as our Parade Grand Marshal!
