Nebraska's Big Rodeo

46710 L Street
Burwell, NE 68823


In 1921, citizens of Burwell, Nebraska decided to put their community on the map with an annual community celebration. They chose to begin a rodeo, which reflected the western heritage of the town. The first rodeo was held in September of 1921, and since that time nearly every professional rodeo champion who has pulled on a pair of boots has tramped through the historic arena of Burwell.

Now Nebraska's Big Rodeo has been going strong for 89 years. Take this opportunity for you and your family to participate in this western heritage by looking back into the past and seeing the future of rodeo right before your very eyes.

Nebraska's Big Rodeo is a nationally known PRCA Rodeo which includes events, special attractions, a wild horse race, chuckwagon racings, dinner bell derby and much much more!

Nebraska's Big Rodeo is only a short trip away but will create memories for your family to cherish for years to come.
