PFD Volunteers are Vital to Rodeo Success

PFD Volunteers are Vital to Rodeo Success

Prescott Frontier Days needs you! To really do a rodeo right, it’s a year-round job, done lovingly by hundreds of volunteers. Many of these folks have been helping in various areas for decades; often several generations of families have joined in. For the upcoming 137th World’s Oldest Rodeo, help is needed in the following areas: parking, security, the Rodeo Parade, mercantile, ticket sales, arena work, arena grounds, hospitality, finance, single-day events, and off-site events.

If you have any questions about an area, please ask. And if volunteering is something you would like to do and can only do a few days, that is great too! The PFD has volunteer training in late June to ensure volunteers feel comfortable and knowledgeable with the tasks they are given. PLUS, by working the rodeo nightly (and two matinees) you get to watch the action while helping out!

PFD appreciates all their volunteers do and they hold a thank-you dinner after the rodeo is over for all of volunteers’ hard work. The spectacular World’s Oldest Rodeo doesn’t happen without volunteers like you — you are the backbone that makes our rodeo run!

This year the rodeo is July 1st through July 7th.  For more information on volunteering, please contact the rodeo office at or contact the Rodeo Office at (928) 445-3103.
