The annual Casa Ford Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding event returns Feb. 5 for the 17th consecutive year to the El Paso County Coliseum, 4100 E. Paisano Drive.

The show includes the traditional Western Tech Tailgate Down Party on event night at the coliseum and the after-party at Whiskey Dicks, 1580 George Dieter Drive, No. 204.

The Tailgate Down Party begins at 5 p.m., with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. The competition kicks off at 8 p.m.

Top-ranked bull riders and bulls will compete for one night only as four-time World Champion and Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer Hedeman lines up champions and Wrangler National Finals Rodeo athletes to compete for the El Paso championship title in his "Cowboy Up" tour.

According to a news release, 24 bull riders and 40 bulls will compete in a three-round tournament-style sudden death format. The event concludes in a final four-man round in which competitors ride to win prize money. El Paso, Hedeman's hometown, will be the first stop on the 2022 tour.

Tickets, ranging from $25 to $90, plus fees, are available at and at the Coliseum Box Office.
