RAM NCFR Frequently Asked Questions - RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo

Follow us


What is the RAM NCFR?

The RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo is a national championship rodeo in which your top 200+ cowboys and cowgirls from across the US, Canada and Mexico will compete in each of the seven traditional rodeo events for $1 million in cash and prizes at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, Florida. Contestants must qualify to attend and compete. The RAM NCFR is run tournament-style. Each contestant will get to participate in two preliminary rounds. The top eight in each event will advance to the semifinals, during which all scores and times will be erased. From there, the top four contestants will compete in the sudden death round of the finals. One champion will be crowned in each rodeo event, and one contestant will become the all-around champion leaving their mark on history!

When does the RAM NCFR take place?

The RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo will be held on April 9-10, 2021 at Osceola Heritage Park.

Where does the RAM NCFR take place?

How much is parking for the RAM NCFR?

Parking for the 2021 RAM NCFR is still to be determined. However, please plan to arrive early for the rodeo to avoid long lines and give yourself time to walk to the arena.

Which contestants are coming?

Though we love to highlight the champions coming to town, we will not know who exactly will be advancing to the RAM NCFR until the last circuit final rodeo has taken place. The circuit finals end in January. Once we have the official results, we will be releasing those contestants’ names closer to the event. Please keep in mind that no-shows do happen from time to time. Contestants may qualify to attend and compete, but some might choose not to, or some experience injury and cannot participate.
