GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alberta – After hosting the league for the three-day, four-event PBR Canada National Finals in 2020, Grande Prairie will once again welcome the league’s elite Cup Series in 2021. Bonnetts Energy Centre, formerly Revolution Place, will host the PBR Grande Prairie BuckWild on Oct. 1-2, 2021.

In order to welcome fans at full capacity, the event will adopt the Government of Alberta’s Restriction Exemption Program.

To ensure compliance with the recently announced public health measures, event-goers aged 12 and older will be required to:

  • Provide proof of vaccination, or
  • A negative test result within 72 hours that does not originate from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories, or
  • Documentation of medical exemption.

Given the increased screening prior to venue entry, fans are encouraged to arrive early to the Bonnetts Energy Centre, formerly Revolution Place, on Oct. 1-2. Doors will open nightly at 5:00 p.m. MDT.

Mask use will remain mandatory inside the venue for fans, except when eating or drinking.

As the PBR Canada Cup Series event approaches, here are a few other frequently asked questions to know before you go!


Q: If I am not vaccinated, where can I obtain an acceptable COVID-19 test?

A: If you are not vaccinated, proof of a negative test result within the past 72 hours that does not originate from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories must be shown to gain entry to the event.

Precede OHS will offer rapid COVID-19 testing onsite at Bonnetts Energy Centre, formerly Revolution Place, on both Friday, October 1 and Saturday, October 2, from 4:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. MDT. Tests will be available for $40 per person, and results will be returned in approximately 15 minutes. Any test performed on-site on Friday that yields a negative result, will also permit entry for the Saturday event in accordance with provincial requirements.

Acceptable tests may also be obtained from your preferred provider prior to the event.


Q: What is acceptable proof of vaccination?

A: Proof of vaccination includes a valid paper or digital vaccine record that shows name, vaccine type and date of administration. Those event-goers age 18 and over will also be required to show a valid photo identification that matches the vaccine record.

For the upcoming PBR event in Grande Prairie, proof of partial vaccination (one dose) will be considered acceptable as long as the dose was given more than two weeks prior to the event date.

Q: What if I no longer wish to attend the show given the restrictions in place via the Restriction Exemption Program?
