Cinch Roping Fiesta

The San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo Association initiated the Roping Fiesta in 1954 as a way to help generate revenue for the association in the off season from the stock show and rodeo. The Roping Fiesta has always been at least a two day event, though the events featured have varied to include calf roping, team roping, steer wrestling, steer roping and double mugging.

Tie Roping became one of the two staples of the Roping Fiesta in 1962, when the committee added a match roping. A match roping is two contestants facing off on a set number of calves for the coveted title. Match roping's require not only great physical ability, but mental stamina as well.

Steer Roping is the foundation of the Roping Fiesta, and the one dominant event that has always been held. This event is truly one that was developed from ranching techniques to help doctor animals in pasture or field settings. As the number of steer roping events across the nation continue to decrease, we are proud to offer this event in preserving western heritage.

The Roping Fiesta dirt has seen as many national qualifiers and world champions in men's timed events, as just about any arena you will find. The event serves as a great reunion for roping enthusiasts from across the nation, and is a bit of a homecoming for all West Texans.

For the first time in the event's history, there will be an open ladies breakaway. There will be a prelim in the 1st Community Credit Union Spur Arena where the ladies will compete in two full rounds. The top 10 times in the average will rope for the championship during the tie down event on Saturday. Thank you to American Hat Co. for making this possible!
