The famed Professional
Bull Riding circuit is
coming to Big Sky for
the first time ever on August
3. Since the event’s early June
announcement, excitement has
been overwhelming, according to
the event committee.
“We are getting phone calls from
people around the state wanting to get involved,
become sponsors and buy tickets,” said Andy Watson,
one of the committee organizers.
“This is becoming an amazing community event,” said
Eric Ladd, who has been instrumental in bringing the
PBR to Big Sky. Ladd said businesses and sponsors are
“really pulling together to help make this happen—from
the Big Sky Town Center who donated the land, to businesses
like Geyser Whitewater, which is donating raft
ing for the bull riders, to Dr. Jeff Saad who is donating chiropractor adjustments
for the riders. The Big Sky community is alive and well.”
Montanan Beau Hill, one of the top bull riders in the world, will be attending.
“What a cool event in the making,” Hill said.
The event committee also announced the lineup of music, including Montana
native and Nashville recording artist Jessica Kilroy, who will play a
pre-party event on Aug. 2 (location TBA), and The Dirty Shame will play
the after party on Aug. 3.
