Andy Devine Days PRCA Rodeo
The 29th Annual Western Week & PRCA Rodeo

The chutes open at the Mohave County Fairgrounds in Kingman for the 29th Annual Andy Devine Days PRCA Rodeo on September 28 at 2:00 pm and September 29 at 1:00 pm.
Cowboys will be competing in Saddleback and Bareback Bronc Riding, Calf Wrestling, Steer Wrestling, Bull Riding and Team Roping - all PRCA sanctioned events. The schedule also includes Women’s Barrel Racing and Junior Barrel Racing, which are WPRA sanctioned.

As one of the last rodeos in the PRCA circuit, it attracts talent not seen at many small town rodeos.  The event features classic rodeo entertainment, such as professional rodeo clowns and a calf dressing competition with teams chasing calves, competing to dress them in boxer shorts.
The infamous One Arm Bandit & Company, a twelve year recipient of the PRCA Specialty Act of the Year, also returns in 2013.  The One Arm Bandit, John Payne, and his Black Mouth Cur dogs herd American Bison around the arena and atop a reinforced stock trailer. “The One Arm Bandit & Company put on a truly spectacular show unlike anything you've ever seen!” says Rebecca Steinberger, who has been involved with the rodeo for several years.

The Andy Devine Days Rodeo has plenty of activities for the kiddos. A Kid’s Korral, manned by the Kingman Route 66 Trailblazers Rotaract Club, will have face painting, calf roping and stick-horse barrel racing – a new feature in 2013!  Mutton busting, with children ages 3 to 6, will take place in the main arena.

The Rodeo’s namesake—Andy Devine—was a popular film actor whose career in silent pictures began in the 1920s.  Andy grew up in Kingman before making it to Hollywood and is best known for his roles in western movies and television shows.  He appeared in movies with the likes of John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Guy Madison and his most memorable work was the role of Jingles in the 1950s television program “The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok.”

Andy Devine Days and the Andy Devine PRCA Rodeo are sponsored by The Kingsmen, a group of local Kingman-area businessmen who work hard to preserve the history and traditions of Kingman's ranching heritage.
