The annual Cave Creek Fiesta Days Rodeo (CCFDR) will once again draw top-ranking male and female pro rodeo contestants, March 26-29, but this year, the festivities will include two weekends of family-friendly rodeo excitement, beginning on March 21.

Presented by the Sanderson Ford and produced by the Cave Creek Pro Rodeo Committee, Fiesta Days kick off Saturday, March 21 with the Historic Parade in town at 9am, followed by the popular Kid’s Mutton Bustin’ at 2pm at the Buffalo Chip Saloon. The Fiesta Days Kick-off activities will offer a full day of fun for all ages in the Town of Cave Creek. For the 21 and over crowd, the CCFDR Official Kick-off Dance sponsored by the Buffalo Chip Saloon, will start at 7pm on Saturday night, March 21.

“Fiesta Days is growing every year and we just have so much going on in one weekend. When the Parade Chair Robbie Hall, made the suggestion to move the Parade to the weekend before, we all had a light bulb go off. The concept of a Kick-off Celebration developed from there and a new tradition was born,” says Traci Casale, president, Cave Creek Pro Rodeo, “and it’s a good one!”
