The Bangor Classic is back. A big night of bull riding is returning to Bangor.

Once again the Cross Insurance Center will host Professional Bull Riders' Bangor Classic. The Bangor event is going into it's 6th straight year. The three-nights of white-knuckle action is set for July 23-25. Tickets are still available.

According to a press release from PBR, "Fans were treated to a top-notch performance by Stetson Lawrence (Williston, North Dakota), who won the event. Going 2-for-4, the North Dakotan known as “The Firewalker” rode his way back onto the elite Unleash The Beast tour after being cut the week before."

The Bangor Classic will be the first in-person event for the Cross Insurance Center, since the onset of COVID-19. PBR was also the last major event held at the Bangor venue before COVID took tours and other events off the road.

PBR says in an effort to minimize fan crossover, tickets to the event will be sold in PODs. PODs are available in groups from 2-8 seats. The overall seating will be reduced capacity. Social distancing will be encouraged at concessions and merchandise stands, restrooms, and other high traffic areas. State and local health and safety guidelines regarding COVID-19 will be in place.
