The 2021 Canadian Cowboys Association (CCA) Finals Rodeo took place at Kinetic Park in Swift Current, Sept. 24-26.
There were four rodeo performances with over 90 competitors during the three-day event. This is the biggest event on the CCA calendar and one of the largest rodeo events in the country, featuring eight competition categories and five junior/novice events. Last year's event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and this year's rodeo was held outdoors at the Magnus Newland Arena, instead of indoors at the Innovation Credit Union iPlex.
