We are very proud to bring this great event back to Opelika where we know first-hand how great the fans are and how much they love to party!

Featuring the Southeast’s rankest bulls and fastest equines, Bull, Bands and Barrels strives to deliver on its promise to be three of the most exciting hours in westerns sports and entertainment. 

For 20-30 minutes, some of the best bull riders will tackle the rankest bucking bulls, striving to make the eight-second buzzer. If a rider stays on his bull for the required eight seconds, he gets a score and a chance to compete in the championship round. If he gets bucked off, he is finished.

The cowgirls will take the dirt following the bull riding to see which of them can get the fastest time as they race around barrels in a figure-eight pattern. 

Intermission will feature the nail-biting competition of freestyle bull fighting. The world’s premier bull fighting competition series will keep fans on the edge of their seats throughout intermission as these athletes take center stage to face their opponents in a true battle of man versus beast.

Following the competition, Muscadine Bloodline will take to the stage to dazzle fans with a powerfully refreshing mix of talent, passion and unfiltered authenticity. Dorsey will play as soon as doors open that evening through the start of the western sports portion of the event, followed by Blane Rudd, Muscadine Bloodline’s opening act.

Adding to the excitement will be a special guest appearance by world renowned championship cowboy Chris Shivers.  In addition to participating in the event presentation, the two time Professional Bull Riders (PBR) world champion will be available for autographs and photos with fans.
