Mesquite Championship Rodeo 2024 Season Starts June 1st!

Join the fun at the legendary Mesquite Arena!

Constructed in 1985, the iconic Mesquite Arena is home to the Mesquite Championship Rodeo, Mesquite Outlaws, and Dallas Outlaws. The arena has recently undergone a $2 million renovation to bring in features such as a jumbotron, upgraded VIP suites, removable turf surface for arena soccer games and professional locker rooms.

Neal Gay founded the rodeo in 1957 as a permanent attraction, as opposed to the traveling competitions that were popular at that time. Called “the original Western sport,” rodeo is the oldest sports franchise in the area. ESPN began broadcasting rodeo performances from the Mesquite Championship Rodeo in the mid-1980s, and it’s now one of the most televised rodeos in the world. The Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association has nominated The Mesquite Championship Rodeo for Rodeo of the Year several times.

Today, Mesquite Arena hosts a diverse range of events including concerts, sporting events, comedy shows and more!
