Matanza Competition

A Matanza is a tradition that dates back to the first American Rodeo in the 1600’s celebrated by American Cowboys known as the Spanish Vaqueros (master herdsman). These Rodeos took place on New Mexican soil over 220 years before Texas Easterners had even learned the “Art of the Vaquero”. The Vaqueros would tend the livestock throughout the year and every November round the livestock up to sell, brand and butcher; this is how the term “Rodeo” came to be. For Centuries our Ancestors have passed along treasured family Matanza recipes. Matanzas’s are a traditional Family and Community gathering event. Friends and Neighbors help in processing livestock and finish the celebration with a feast and of course, Music. APFMCSC, Show Starters Entertainment LLC and ABC Entertainers Plus Promotions LLC is committed to pass this tradition on and help feed New Mexico.
