The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Rodeo is returning for its second year on Saturday, May 13 at the Paso Robles Event Center.
The rodeo will showcase some of the best cowboys and cowgirls from all over the state in events like team roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, breakaway roping and team sorting.
Just like last year, a free concert will be held after the rodeo with this year's concert featuring a performance from Nashville recording artist Filmore.
New this year is bull riding which will showcase some of the top bull riders in the sport, including world champion bull fighter Alex McWilliams.
Tickets, which include access to the rodeo and the concert, are free for children under 12, and are $10 for general admission.
