About Us

The Desert Foothills Community Association (DFCA) is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit Arizona corporation headquartered in Cave Creek, Arizona. The DFCA, better known as the Cave Creek Pro Rodeo Committee, is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of no less than seven and no more than eleven elected members according to our current By-laws.  The 2014 Board of Directors consists of eleven members and their main areas of responsibility can be seen below:

Traci Casale – President / Sales & Marketing / Production

Bill Buckles – Arena Director

Beth Cornell – Treasurer / Hospitality Chair

Stacy Tucker – Hospitality Co-Chair / Volunteers

One weekend, each spring, the CCPR Committee produces three full PRCA Rodeo performances, along with the annual Golf Tournament, Parade, Dances and Mutton Bustin’ Competition.  These events are all part of the Cave Creek Fiesta Days™ Rodeo celebration that started more than 35 years ago.  The Cave Creek Fiesta Days Rodeo is the ONLY professional rodeo in Cave Creek, AZ and Rodeo Weekend has become the largest attended & most anticipated event in our area.

Membership is open to the public by submitting an application along with a ten-dollar annual membership fee. The Board of Directors is elected by the membership and manages the association and its activities.  There is no paid staff.  All activities of the Association are conducted by the membership, with the assistance of other volunteers who share a common interest in professional rodeo.

The Cave Creek Pro Rodeo Committee generally meets on a monthly basis.  Meetings are open to anyone wishing to attend.  Volunteers and new members are always welcome.

Thank you for learning more “About Us” and we look forward to seeing y’all at the chutes!
