Get The Most Out of CFR 44
Did you know there’s a lot more to the Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) 44 than just the main rodeo performances? Whether you’re coming to CFR for the full week or just one day, there is lots to do before and after the cowboys enter the ring.
Go Behind the Chutes
When you buy your ticket, be sure to participate in the Chute Tours. Experience the life of a cowboy when you go behind the scenes of CFR 44. Learn what goes into producing a rodeo, get up close and personal with the animals and imagine what it feels like to wait in the chute with thousands of fans cheering you on from the seats.
Dance the Night Away
When the last bull rider finishes his performance, that does not mean it’s lights out at CFR. That’s when the party is just getting started at The Roadhouse presented by TD at the Edmonton EXPO Centre. Tanya Tucker and Aaron Pritchett will keep the party going well into the evening starting at 10:30 P.M. on Saturday, November 11. Or catch the Dallas Smith Side Effects with Lauren Alaina and Michael Ray on Friday, November 10, starting at 7:30 P.M.
Meet Rodeo Royalty
No rodeo is complete without a Miss Rodeo pageant. Miss Rodeo Canada will crown its winner for 2018 in a special ceremony following competitions in horsemanship, public speaking and a fashion show. Buy your tickets for the Miss Rodeo Canada Alumni Brunch on Saturday, November 11 and meet winners from the last 62 years.
Learn All About Agriculture in Canada
Before you head over to Northlands Coliseum to watch an evening performance, be sure to stop by Farmfair International at the Edmonton EXPO Centre during the day. Your CFR ticket gives you admission to Farmfair International so do not forget to check it out! Take in the cattle and equine events to see the best in show or watch the Stock Dog Competition to see handlers and their dogs work together to herd sheep through several obstacles using only whistles and voice commands.
Say Farewell to Northlands Coliseum
CFR 44 is the final major event to be hosted in Northlands Coliseum. This is your last chance to relive your favourite CFR memories in this historic venue. Grab some friends, buy a round of drinks and take in the atmosphere before the curtain closes following the last performance.
Share Your Experience
Watch a Rodeo Performance
This goes without saying – the main attraction at the CFR is the rodeo at Northlands Coliseum. From November 8 to 12, cowboys from around the North America will be in Edmonton competing to be the best in their event. These include novice events, saddle bronc, ladies barrel racing and bull riding. Whether you plan to come for the full week or just one day, do not forget to buy your tickets.
