Mutton Bustin’

IMPORTANT & EXCITING CHANGES TO THE 2014 MUTTON BUSTIN’ COMPETITION:

We will be holding the CCFDR Annual Mutton Bustin’ Competition and Finals on Saturday, March 29th.  The top three contestants with the best times in each age group will be called back into the arena to see who will be the CHAMPIONS on the same day!

The Mutton Bustin’ Competition will start at 2pm followed by the Finals.  The start of the Final runs will depend on the total number of contestants.

Admission* to Mutton Bustin’ is only $5.00 and will be “cash only / pay at the gates” (no pre-sales).  No admission charge for contestants (fee is paid with their application) and no admission charge for children ages 3 and under for the Mutton Bustin’.  Gates will open at noon that day for early registration from 12:30 to 1:30pm.  Gates will close at the completion of the Mutton Bustin’ event.

Anyone planning to attend the Saturday night rodeo performance must purchase separate tickets to that event.  Rodeo fans are encouraged to purchase tickets for Saturday night in advance as it sells out.  Rodeo tickets are available at TicketForce.com and prices range from $12 to $18.

*Mutton Bustin’ pricing does not apply to or include PRCA Rodeo Performances.*

Please note: The modest admission fee helps our committee pay for the sheep rental and other costs assoicated with hosting this long-standing Cave Creek family tradition.
