Silver Spurs Rodeo

Florida designated the Silver Spurs Rodeo (in Kissimmee, Osceola County) as the official state rodeo in 1994. Cattle ranches, rodeos, and cowboys played a large role in the area's history and culture.

The Silver Spurs Rodeo is held twice each year. Part of the Osceola Heritage Park, the Silver Spurs Rodeo was founded in 1944 by the Silver Spurs Riding Club to promote good horsemanship and good fellowship in Osceola County. Since then the Silver Spurs Rodeo has grown to become the largest rodeo east of the Mississippi.
