BIG SKY – Outlaw Partners, event producers of Big Sky PBR and publisher of this newspaper, is thrilled to announce that Big Sky’s Biggest Week is back and is bigger than ever. We’re celebrating 10 Years of Big Sky PBR this year so big bulls, big acts and big sound are heading to Big Sky.
After more than a year full of virtual events, Big Sky PBR, seven-time Event of the Year and part of the PBR’s Touring Pro Division, will stomp into Town Center for a full week of action-packed events between July 16-24. The week kicks off on Friday, July 16 with the Big Sky Art Auction preview and Big Sky Community Rodeo.
On Saturday, July 17, auction bidders will gather in the basecamp tent located at the Plaza of The Wilson Hotel for the Big Sky Art Auction tent to bid on traditional and contemporary Western art, jewelry, and furniture. You will not want to miss this opportunity to bring home a piece for your mountain home.
Ace Hardware – Big Sky is proud to continue to be a signature sponsor for the Big Sky PBR this year.
“For the past 10 years, the Big Sky PBR has always been the community event of the year, growing in popularity, attendance and spectacle with each production,” said Ace Hardware – Big Sky store owner, Kevin Barton. “We love being a part of the positive impact the PBR has brought to Big Sky. The town really shifts into high gear during the week surrounding PBR. We feel that the mountain west values are well represented by everyone associated with the Big Sky PBR, and it is an obvious choice for us to make this our signature sponsorship as well.”
The week continues into Tuesday, July 20 for a new day of activities, featuring a mutton bustin’ pre-ride competition for the kiddos to hold on tight and compete for a spot in the big show—the PBR bull riding events Thursday, July 22 through Saturday, July 24. To round out the night, help support local nonprofits by participating in the new Bingo Night event under the basecamp tent.
The action doesn’t stop there. Start practicing your putting game for the PBR Golf tournament on Wednesday, July 23. The event will benefit Western Sports Foundation.
Each night before the bull riding, there will be a special meet and greet opportunity to say “howdy” to the professional bull riders. Then, head on over to the PBR events arena for the real action on the dirt to see the cowboys compete for eight seconds of glory, followed by live music.
Legendary singer-songwriter Robert Earl Keen will hit the SAV stage at the PBR Arena on Saturday, July 24 for what is sure to be an unforgettable evening of storytelling and music that have made the Houston, Texas native a renowned performer.
Jason Boland & The Stragglers, the gritty, honkytonk Texas Country/American Red Dirt band will warm up the stage on Friday, July 23 with their chart-topping hits and iconic country sound.
The remaining tickets for bull riding include access to the nightly music events and go on sale Monday, March 1 at 9 a.m. MST online only at bigskypbr.com. Limited music-only tickets will also be available online at bigskypbr.com beginning March 1.
