Tucson Rodeo Parade nears historic milestone

by The 100 Companies

Since 1925, folks from far and wide have flocked to Tucson – a true frontier town at the time – for the annual Tucson Rodeo Parade, founded by F.L. Kramer.

What began in the midst of Prohibition – when a genuine Stetson hat cost $8 – remains the longest non-motorized parade in the country, one en route to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2025.

In anticipation, La Fiesta de los Vaqueros (the 99th, slated for Feb. 22), the Tucson Rodeo Parade Museum is undergoing a rebrand, aimed at engaging visitors of all ages in the rich history of this local tradition – including vintage vehicles galore.
