Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between reserved and general admission seating?
Purchasing tickets to the Folsom Pro Rodeo is easy and frankly, there isn't a bad seat in the arena. Two types of seating is available, reserved ($24.50 all seats plus online service charge) and general admission ($19.50, $15 seniors/children under 12). Reserved seating, only available for purchase online, is a numbered seat. Online, if you are unclear on the best seating, just choose "best available" and let the computer do the rest. General admission is available online, at the Folsom Chamber of Commerce, Handley's Western Wear and Boot Barn locations. If you require ADA seating or have special needs, we ask that you call the Folsom Chamber of Commerce, (916) 985-2698 for assistance.

Does my 2-year-old need a ticket?

When should I get to the arena?
The rodeo gates open at 6 p.m. The roping events start at 7 p.m. If you have a general admission ticket and want that perfect seat, we suggest arriving close to that time. Put a blanket down on your seats and stroll out to the Cool Down Corral for dinner or snacks. There are a variety of dining choices for everybody’s taste. The Rodeo really heats up at 8 p.m. so if you have a reserved seat, be sure and be there before then.
