BIG SKY – Outlaw Partners is bringing back the most iconic wild west experience with the eight-time “Event of the Year” for the 12th annual Big Sky PBR and Big Sky’s Biggest Week. This year’s PBR event will be a one-of-a-kind immersive western experience starting the second attendees walk through the gates.
“I have been around the world three times and Big Sky is my favorite PBR stop,” says Cord McCoy, bull stock contractor, former professional rodeo cowboy and three-time The Amazing Race contestant. “The bulls always seem to love the cool mountain air and perform at their best there. Big Sky is going to be an even bigger event for us this year as we will showcase our next generation of bulls. We are not holding back; the power meets in Big Sky. We plan to bring the best athletes because we know the best fans will be there.”
Three nights of Big Sky PBR bull riding will take place Thursday, July 20 through Saturday, July 22, featuring 40 of the world’s best cowboys going head-to-head with world-class bulls for the sport’s Challenger Series circuit
Tickets for the famed Big Sky PBR will go on sale March 1 at 10 a.m. MST, online only at bigskypbr.com.
Big Sky’s Biggest Week, July 14-22, will include the Community Street Dance, Community Day with family-friendly activities, the 3rd Annual Dick Allgood Bingo Night and the PBR Golf Tournament, all punctuated by three nights of bull riding and live music.
Jamie McLean will hit the SAV Stage on Friday, July 21 followed by Grammy Award-winning local favorite and friend of Outlaw, Lukas Nelson to close out the week with an exhilarating show after the final round of bull riding on Saturday, July 22. Admission to the music after parties are included with PBR tickets, and music-only tickets will also be available for purchase.
