2016 CCFDR Poster features Junior Noguiera

The 2016 CCFDR souvenir poster features Brazilian Heeling sensation, Junior Nogueira.  This 2x WNFR contestant won his very first PRCA buckle at the 2014 Cave Creek Fiesta Days Rodeo!

Junior roped at the Finals this year with Jojo LeMond due to a very unfortunate horse accident that 7x World Champion Header, Jake Barnes had while practicing in Rio Verde, AZ.  In an interview, Junior spoke of how he would do his best professionally, but was sad that he would not be competing with his partner, Jake Barnes.

Watching Junior & Jojo rope was definitely thrilling, and as promised, Junior did very well at this past NFR.  We are looking forward to seeing both Jake & Junior at the 2016 CCFDR, April 1-3.

The Cave Creek Fiesta Days Rodeo is presented by Sanderson Ford.   Rodeo tickets sold at TicketForce.com soon!

Courtesy Shuttles

The Town of Cave Creek has been working hard to increase the parking capacity out at the rodeo grounds.  We’re told parking has increased by 75% and we all know that is wonderful news.

With that being said, we have just been informed that the Town has decided not to run the courtesy bus shuttles this year.  Please note, the courtesy shuttles were organized and run sole and separate from the Fiesta Days Rodeo Committee.

If you have any questions or feedback in regards to the free shuttle service, please email the Town of Cave Creek’s Community Outreach Coordinator [Patty Pollnow] at ppollnow@cavecreek.org  or call Town Hall at 480-488-1400 – Thank you!
