About PBR

The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) tour was founded in 1992 by a group of 20 bull riders looking to bring their sport mainstream and it now holds more than 300 annual events in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil and Australia. “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 rapidly transformed one of the fastest-growing sports in America into a worldwide phenomenon.

PBR in Big Sky

The Big Sky PBR is part of the Touring Pro Division, PBR’s Unleash the Beast Premier series which is one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the country, making stops at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and in Las Vegas. This high-octane show is a spectacle to witness, and a treat to experience in Big Sky PBR’s intimate arena with one of Mother Nature’s best backdrops – the 11,166-foot Lone Mountain.

Entering its tenth 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 20,000 attendees and the best bull riders from around the world. The Big Sky PBR has been voted Event of the Year by PBR bull riders for seven consecutive years (2013-2019) at the PBR World Finals, sharing Montana with the world one bull ride at a time.

At the Big Sky PBR, it’s not just about bull riding. In 2019, over $100,000 was raised for local nonprofits through art, calcutta auctions, and 50/50 ticket sales.

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