Official State Rodeo of Florida

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. Texas. South Dakota, and Wyoming also recognize rodeo as an official state symbol. All State Sports

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 and draws tens of thousands of visitors each year.
