Award-winning country music singer and songwriter, Aaron Watson, will take the stage following the closing night of the 78th Poly Royal Rodeo.

Watson is a rising star in country music, best known for his hit singles "Outta Style," "That Look," and "July In Cheyenne." He has had a 19-year career that started with his first album, “Aaron Watson Singer/Songwriter,” released in 1999. He has since released a dozen albums and has played over 2,500 live performances, according to his biography

The rodeo will be held April 13–14 at Alex G. Spanos Stadium. College rodeo athletes from all over the West Coast will compete for a championship in events such as barrel racing, team roping, breakaway roping, tie-down roping, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, bull riding, and steer wrestling. The rodeo will also feature stunts, clown acts, calf dressing, and more.

“The Poly Royal Rodeo has been a part of Cal Poly for nearly eight decades,” Cal Poly Rodeo Coach Ben Londo said. “Last year, with hard work and community support, we made history by putting on the largest collegiate rodeo in the nation. We are ready to do it again.”

The rodeo will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 13, and will include kid-friendly activities. Tickets cost $20 for students, $25 for general admission, and $40 for chair-back seats. Admission is free for children under 10 years old.

The final rodeo event will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 14 with a live post-show concert by Watson. Tickets are $10 for children ages 2 to 10, $25 for students, $30 for general admission, and $50 for chair-back seats. Admission is free for children under 2.

Tickets are now available through the Cal Poly Ticket Office. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Cal Poly Rodeo program. Follow the ASI Events Facebook and ASI Events Instagram, and RSVP to the Facebook event for concert updates and information.
