The Big Sky PBR is part of PBR’s True Velocity Tour – a competition series following World Finals consisting of more than 60 events in 27 states across the United States. With its Championship held in Las Vegas, the Challenger Series will run in conjunction with the new PBR Team Series – an eight-team league competing in five-on-five bull riding games from July to November 2022.

Big Sky PBR’s high-octane show is a spectacle to witness, and a treat to experience in Big Sky’s intimate arena with one of Mother Nature’s best backdrops – the 11,166-foot Lone Mountain.

The Big Sky PBR has been voted Event of the Year by PBR bull riders for 10 consecutive years (2013-2021) at the PBR World Finals, sharing Montana with the world one bull ride at a time.

Entering its 13th season, the first Big Sky PBR event was a one-night show held in 2011 with a second night added in 2012. Since then, Big Sky PBR’s massive production has turned one week of the year into Big Sky’s Biggest Week, bringing economic boom to Southwest Montana and drawing over 30,000 attendees and the best bull riders from around the world.

Tickets sell out quickly for the series of events so act fast to secure your spot in one of the most exciting events to hit the greater Yellowstone region.

At the Big Sky PBR, it’s not just about bull riding. In 2023, over $290,000 was raised for local nonprofits throughout Big Sky’s Biggest Week events.

It’s a great week to plan a trip to Big Sky, Montana!

Headquartered in Pueblo, Colorado, the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) tour was founded in 1992 by a group of 20 bull riders looking to bring their sport mainstream. The PBR now holds more than 300 annual events in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Australia, attracting more than 2.5 million spectators each year. “The Toughest Sport on Dirt,” combines intense sports action and world-class production that can’t be rivaled by any other major league sport. In just two decades, PBR has grown into a global sports sensation that has awarded more than $140 million in prize money. The PBR has rapidly transformed one of the fastest-growing sports in America into a worldwide phenomenon.
