SAN ANGELO, Texas – On August 27, 2020, the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo announced the contestants set to go head to head in the Cinch Roping Fiesta Match Roping.

The Roping Fiesta began in 1954 and has since become a traditional an annual event. The event usually brings out thousands of fans from all over Texas and the nation along with high profile contestants. It generates revenue for the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo association during the rodeo off-season since the San Angelo Rodeo is generally held in February each year.

Another major announcement was made in 2018 when for the first time in the event’s history, the Roping Fiesta became a PRCA sanctioned event. This means that the cowboy’s winnings will count toward the PRCA end of the year earnings. Those earnings determine which contestants will compete at the National Finals Rodeo.
