Public Safety Procedures

Safety procedures for the 2022 Rodeo.


Tucson Rodeo Safety Policy


The Tucson Rodeo Committee, Inc. and venue security promote responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Any guest who intends to purchase and/or consume alcohol must first present a valid ID to verify age at a designated station and obtain a wristband. (The ONLY acceptable legal forms of ID that will be accepted is GOVERNMENT ISSUED DRIVER LICENSE, and/or GOVERNMENT ISSUED PASSPORT.)
NO alcohol will be sold to guests who do not have an issued wristband.
NO alcohol will be sold to guests who appear to be intoxicated.
There is a two (2) drink limit, per transaction, at concession stands.
Management reserves the right to cut off alcohol sales at its discretion.
Guests passing alcohol to minors will be ejected and subject to arrest.
Guests possessing alcohol, who do not have proof of being at least 21 years of age, may be ejected.
We reserve the right to refuse the sale of alcohol to any guest.
Outside alcoholic beverages may NOT be brought into the grounds. Any attempt to bring alcohol into the grounds may result in the guests being ejected, arrested and/or tickets being revoked.
ALL guests must finish and dispose of alcoholic beverages before exiting rodeo property.
Alcohol consumption is not permitted in the parking lot.


All non-rodeo animals are prohibited from Tucson Rodeo grounds with the exception of certified service animals.


Anyone occupying a seat at the rodeo must have a ticket. Child car seats occupying a seat must have a ticket. Children, under the age of two (2), may enter at no cost provided they sit on an adult lap. All other children must have a ticket.

Seat cushions are permitted but must not exceed 18 inches wide and contain no pockets, zippers or concealable areas.

Strollers are permitted onto the grounds but must be left at the entry to the seating area. No strollers are permitted in the stands.


Tucson Rodeo will allow photography and digital image capture of the rodeo for private and personal use, as long as this activity does not interfere with the ability of other spectators to view the rodeo and the photographer does not occupy seats he or she has not purchased. Camera bags (unless clear), camera tripods, monopods, or single purpose video cameras are not permitted (see prohibited bags and items above)*.

Any commercial use or distribution without the express written consent of Tucson Rodeo and/or the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) is strictly prohibited. You may use photographs or digital images obtained from the Tucson Rodeo solely for private or personal, non-commercial purposes only. Any other use, including for any commercial, issue advocacy or fundraising purposes, is strictly prohibited without our express prior written consent. Systematic retrieval of images from the rodeo, whether to create or compile, directly or indirectly, a collection or compilation is prohibited absent our express prior written consent.

Our goal has been and continues to be to prevent the unauthorized use of Tucson Rodeo imagery for commercial use, profit generation or the promotion of organizations and agendas unrelated to the Tucson Rodeo. As a result, photography for personal use is welcomed.


*Special provisions will be made for Canon Workshop attendees who bring their own equipment - please check in no later than 11 a.m. to allow for screening.
