Your Guide to the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Kissimmee
Rodeo season is upon us, friends! We are less than 30 days out to the 2019 RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo in Kissimmee. Are you ready? Did you get your tickets and are wondering what activities or events you can attend? Well, you’re in luck! We are here to help you maximize your rodeo experience. Here are a few things to know!
Monday, March 18, 2019, 3:00pm-6:00pm
Join us in Downtown Kissimmee to kick off the week of the RAM NCFR with our 5th annual Cattle Drive! We host this signature event every year while paying tribute to a piece of our local history in Kissimmee. Back in the late 1870s when local ranchers’ livestock got out or were caught wandering around the county, people could help return them to the rightful owner by simply bringing the animal to the county courthouse and tying them to the hitching posts out front. Today, for our Cattle Drive event, we begin on the historic Osceola County courthouse lawn. From there, we drive approximately 30-40 head of cattle down Broadway in Kissimmee while fans and friends line the streets to watch. Everything is set up by 3pm, and the cattle will moo-move at 4pm, followed by the after party at 3 Sisters Speakeasy till about 6pm. At the after party, we have live music and rodeo queens signing autographs and mingling with all the participants. This event is free and open to the public, and we’d love to have you become a part of our history! If you attend, please use the City Centre Garage on Dakin Ave.
