Tomas Garcilazo headlines the 70th Buffalo PRCA Championship Rodeo, June 20-22, 2024

The Buffalo PRCA Championship Rodeo is proud to bring Tomas Garcilazo, a native of Mexico City, as the specialty entertainment during the 70th anniversary June 20-22, 2024.  Tomas, third generation Charro, has devoted his life to sharing Mexico’s National Sport La Charreria with the world.  Tomas Garcilazo’s proficiency as a skilled horseman and rope artist defines him as one of the finest Charros presenting La Charreria today.

Tomas will perform nightly during Minnesota’s oldest ProRodeo in Buffalo, Minn.  He has performed throughout Europe, Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. He has appeared on Broadway in New York City and toured the U.S. with the Will Rogers Follies, an acclaimed 6-time Tony Award winning show. His awards are many including the PRCA 2018, 2013, 2012 and 2007 Specialty Act of the Year and most recently TV talent show winner of the ‘Go Big Show’ season 1 featured on TBS channel.

The Buffalo PRCA Championship Rodeo began in 1955 sanctioned by Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) and Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA). The Barnes PRCA Rodeo company is our stock contractor since 1955.

Buffalo Rodeo Association is a non-profit 501c3 and provides family friendly entertainment annually.  In addition, several area non-profits raise funds during the rodeo performances. The Boy Scouts sell popcorn, Cub Scouts have a food stand, Lions take tickets, Masons provide security and Montrose Fire Department coordinates parking to name a few.
