In 2019, Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo will feature some of the nation’s most talented specialty entertainers. Back by popular demand is Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey. The Rodeo will feature the wild and western cowboy primate atop his Border Collie mount, Boogie, as they round up wild Barbados sheep. Whiplash has entertained crowds at
rodeos and special events across North America and Europe and a beloved highlight of the event. Joining Whiplash are Justin Rumford, Professional Rodeo Clown of the Year, and Roger Mooney, the voice of the Rodeo for over twenty years. In addition, Dusti Dickerson, talented Trick and Roman Rider, brings her high-speed tricks to the Triangle.
Prior to the Rodeo, fans are invited to arrive early for a free pre-show event on the dirt; doors will open at 6 p.m. Enjoy pony rides, meet and greets with cowboys and entertainers, and photo opportunities atop Sonny and Silver Dollar, the live bulls in the bucking chutes and more.
