The Grand National Livestock Exposition, Horse Show and Rodeo

The spirit of the old west is still alive and well in San Francisco California. The 2014 Grand National Livestock Exposition, Horse Show and Rodeo continues its western tradition with the PRCA Rodeo at the Cow Palace for two action packed weekends.

For over 70 years the Grand National Rodeo, Horse Show and Livestock Show has been the West's most prestigious western lifestyle event attracting thousands of participants and fans from 7 western states. The exhibitors and participants have flocked year after year for the coveted Grand National Champion awards. The attendees have returned to witness the best livestock, cowboys and cowgirls the west has to offer.

The Grand National Horse Show is one of the most anticipated indoor equestrian events in the west. The AQHA Horse Show runs Thursday October 17th through Saturday October 26th. The PRCA Rodeo is produced for the 44th year by Cotton Rosser and the Flying U Rodeo Company. Rosser will bring his top stock for the 600 plus professional cowboys to compete in the 7 rodeo events for championship points.

Livestock Show exhibitors will enter their best stock competing for top prize money and the holy grail, the honor of showing a Grand National Champion.

The Cow Palace will again honor the California Livestock Person of the Year during the Cattleman's Day celebration.

Come early and stay late at the Grand National Western Experience, where you can shop at the marketplace, taste some award winning Bar-be-que, and dance your boots off at the Cow Palace Saloon before and after each PRCA rodeo performance.

The buck doesn't stop here - in fact, it starts here October 17th and runs through October 25th in 2014.  Check out the preliminary 2014 information here.
