7:30 P.M. FRIDAY, SEPT. 10

Rodeo fans, get ready to rumble at the 2021 Kansas State Fair. The tour features 30 of the toughest skilled bull riders from across the United States, who will go head to head against some of the fiercest animals in the business. The show begins with explosions and flames before the bravest cowboys deliver two hours of edge-of-your-seat entertainment.

Besides skilled cowboys, the event features three bullfighters, including Cade Gibson. A Texas native, Gibson grew up amid the rodeo scene and, in 2018, claimed the first-ever American Freestyle Bull Fighting world title at the AFB World Championship held in Uvalde, Texas.

World-traveling rodeo clown Matt Merritt, one of the best entertainers in the business, will keep crowds laughing. Known for his dancing skills, Merritt loves to create an atmosphere that's fun for the audience.

Mutton Bustin'
Mutton Bustin’ has all the makings in itself of being a real-life bull riding competition in miniature. With that in mind, the Fair moved the Kansas State Fair Mutton Bustin’ Championships to coincide with the bull riding tour. The mutton bustin’ semifinals begins at 6 p.m. The mutton bustin’ finals will take place before the bull riding finals. The Pretty Prairie Rodeo Association helps put on the annual event, which is sponsored by Continental Siding.
