Best Place to Be Seen

Bergeron Rodeo

F

or more than 40 years, the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds has been Davie’s main tourist attraction, so it is only natural that it was named Best Local Landmark. The indoor/outdoor facility is located in the historical western-theme downtown district. It is home to the Davie Pro Rodeo tour, where visitors can come dressed in cowboy boots and hats to watch some real cowboys try their best to hang onto a bull. The arena was recently expanded to fit the more versatile needs of the Davie community. It is now also used for top name concert entertainers and family events that include monster trucks, horse shows, dog shows, car shows, air boat shows, specialty shows, industrial shows and more. There is always something happening at the Bergeron Rodeo Grounds.
