About the Rodeo
Washington State Fair Rodeo
September 5-7, 2014
The Northwest's Biggest Rodeo
The Justin Boots Playoffs are in Puyallup with top athletes and stock competing for the largest purse in the Northwest!
The burning desire to become a world champion is the ONLY thing on the rodeo competitors’ minds by the time they hit the end of the season and the playoffs. Their destination is the National Finals Rodeo. They have to prove it at the Washington State Fair Rodeo, or pack up and go home.
The top 24 competitors in each event will be vying for their part of the prize winnings, and their performances guarantee edge-of-your-seat action. They are not only giving the fans their best, but they are doing their best to move on to NFR.
