The Professional Bull Riders Monster Energy Tour will make a stop in Grande Prairie this fall.

Set for Oct. 2 and 3, it's the first time the circuit's top tour will come to Grande Prairie. PBR's developmental Touring Pro Division made a stop in the city last year.

"The Monster Energy Tour regularly features Canada’s best riders alongside some of the league’s top international athletes, squaring off against the rankest bucking bulls from across the nation," organizers said in a release.

"Fans will witness exhilarating 8-second rides and wrecks throughout the action-packed event as the PBR’s courageous bull-riding athletes face off against their 2,000-pound opponents."

Tickets go on sale Friday, June 26. Organizers say the events will feature physically-distanced seating, cashless and contactless concessions, and streamlined entry and exits due to COVID-19.

The 2020 PBR Canada Finals go November 13 and 14 in Saskatoon.
