Silver Spurs Arena
Though it can house the cheers of 8,000 rodeo fans, the Silver Spurs Arena’s retractable seating and flexible flooring options make it easy to swap out bulls with horses, basketball players, indoor football players, ice skaters, BMX racers, cheerleaders, gymnasts, music festivals, and almost any other form of entertainment that can fit into nearly 34,000 climate-controlled square feet.
The major highlights of the arena’s calendar is the semiannual rodeo and the annual Florida Cowboy Heritage Festival, which celebrates ranch life with two nights of rodeo competitions and a day packed with activities, contests, and showcases of cowboy art. Each night, the arena hosts teams of local wranglers tackling events such as bronco riding, calf paint-branding, and stampede racing. The Heritage Festival showcases live actors demonstrating the daily routines of ranch life, ranchers tending to their herds, and cowboy poets pondering whether a bull by any other name would kick as hard. A feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, the event features an annual cook-off, in which visitors can sample cuts of brisket fresh from the smokers.
