How did it become the ‘World’s Oldest Rodeo’?
Prescott Frontier Days feature

The first Prescott rodeo was held in Forbing Park in Miller Valley in the northwest part of Prescott. Since then, the contests have been held at different locations, including the City Park (now Ken Lindley Field) on East Gurley Street and at other places. Since 1913, it has been held at the present rodeo grounds located just west of Miller Valley Road in Prescott. Pictured is a 1923 calf roping contest. (Sharlot Hall Museum/Courtesy)
