Entering its seventh year of competition, PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) premier expansion tour, the Pendleton Whisky Velocity Tour (PWVT), has released a preliminary 2021 schedule including 19 tour stops, with a minimum of an additional six in the works.
The PWVT season opens the gates on January 15-16 in the heart of bull riding’s homeland, Texas, with the PWVT’s first ever visit to the H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, and will end crowning a champion at South Point Arena in Las Vegas October 30-31, 2021.

The fastest-growing tour in bull riding is scheduled to bring its brand of edge-of-your-seat thrills and spills to other fan-favorite markets, including Bangor, Maine; Knoxville, Tennessee; Wheeling, West Virginia; Grand Forks, North Dakota; and Hampton, Virginia.
A return to Greenville, South Carolina is also on the docket for Jan. 21-22, marking PBR’s first return to the market since 2018, a PWVT sell-out event.
After being scheduled for September 2020 in Pensacola but postponing due to the effects of Hurricane Sally, PBR is proud to return to the Pensacola Bay Center on March 20-21.
The PWVT will also return to Dayton, Ohio for the sixth-straight year on March 13 and fans in Fairfax, Virginia will have the chance to see their favorite riders and bulls on Sept. 25-26.
Throughout the 2021 season, PBR will continue to commit to providing a safe environment for fans, athletes, employees, and crew across all tours by working with its venue partners to implement industry-leading protocols for holding live events while following health guidance from local and state officials for each event.
