Welcome to the Greatest Show on Dirt!
The Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo celebrates and honor Black Cowboys and Cowgirls and their contributions to building the west. We highlight the irrefutable global appeal of Black Cowboys and Cowgirls in the West and the stories behind a subculture that is still strong today. BPIR also serves as a cultural event and opportunity for families to enjoy and embrace the cowboy culture, while being educated and entertained with reenactments, history highlights, and western adventure by four generations of Black Cowboys and Cowgirls!
The vision of the Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo is to continue to educate everyone about Black Western Heritage and the significance of Black Cowboys and Cowgirls. BPIR will continue to provide a cost effective family entertainment event that is educational, fun, and safe while continuing to entertain all ages and nationalities as we have done for the past 35 years.
Events include thrilling Calf Ropin’, exhilarating Bareback Ridin’, Bull Doggin’, Ladies Barrel Racin’, Junior Barrel Racin’, Ladies Steer Undecoratin’, and gripping Bull Ridin’. It’s ALWAYS a great weekend of high family entertainment and scrumptious food!
Added entertainment includes an After-Party on Saturday Night and a Gospel Explosion Sunday with live performances during Pre-Show and half time. Gates on Sunday open 2 hours before the event.
Not recommended for young children.
