Reno Rodeo officials urge visitors to avoid marked-up online tickets

Staff Reports

On Thursday, Reno Rodeo officials were made aware that VividSeats.com is selling Reno Rodeo tickets ranging from $45-$100. After an investigation by ticket office officials, it is confirmed that these are valid tickets that are being sold at a more than 100 percent markup.

"The Reno Rodeo encourages anyone looking to come to the event to purchase tickets at MyNevadaTickets.com or at the ticket office on the grounds," said Executive Committee Member and former Ticket Chairman Bill Johnson. "We encourage people against purchasing tickets through third parties and are saddened by third parties that take advantage of people in these situations. While we cannot control who sell tickets online, no selling of tickets above their list price is allowed on the Rodeo grounds."

"The Rodeo has been a proud Reno tradition for 98 years now," said Reno Rodeo President Brad Sidener. "We want to ensure that it remains a family-friendly event, which includes keeping ticket prices low."

Tickets for the Reno Rodeo are available at MyNevadaTickets.com or at the ticket office on the grounds and range from $13-$26 depending on the night and preferred seating area. Discounted tickets are also available at $8 for children, seniors and military for the June 18-21 events.

Festivities begin tonight at 7 p.m., and Patriot's Night is sure to bring some star-spangled excitement for the whole family. For more information and live results every night visit the newsroom at RenoRodeo.com.
