New thrills and chills added to Edmonton’s Signature summer Festival
EDMONTON, AB – Northlands and the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association (CPRA) are proud to announce the introduction of the K-Days Summer Rodeo in July 2017. From July 21-23, the Northlands Coliseum will welcome the best cowboys and cowgirls for the richest one-header rodeo in North America. Professional athletes from across Canada and the United States will compete for their share of a $400,000 purse over the course of this exciting three-day event.
“Northlands is proud to showcase our region’s western heritage with the addition of a summer rodeo to K-Days,” said Tim Reid, President and CEO for Northlands. “Rural and urban audiences alike will get a chance to enjoy world class rodeo action as a part of their K-Days gate admission.”
“Northlands has been our partner in the Canadian Finals Rodeo for 43 years,” said Jeff Robson with the Canadian Pro Rodeo Association. “Showcasing the best of the best in the sport of rodeo at a sanctioned CPRA event is a win/win for all. Not only is this one of the biggest purses in North America but this gives the winners a stronger opportunity to qualify for CFR in November 2017.”
Tickets for the K-Day Rodeo will be available in spring 2017 with exclusive pre-sale opportunities to our dedicated CFR six-pack members.
