4th of July Rodeo

4th of July Rodeo

When the chutes open this July 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in Red Lodge, Montana, it will be to celebrate 90 years of Red Lodge Rodeo! This year promises to be an outstanding event with the world`s best cowboys and cowgirls competing. Cowboys will be competing on stock provided by Brookman Rodeo Company, our Rodeo Clown "Danger Dave" Whitmoyer and Bullfighter Al Sandvold will entertain the crowds and Doug Mathis from Texas will keep everyone informed from the announcer`s booth.

The Red Lodge Rodeo dates back to the late 1890`s with local cowboys getting together on a Sunday afternoon at the railroad stockyards to ride exhibition broncos. In 1929, a group of local cowboys built an arena, gathered up some wild horses, charged admission and contested the rides. In 1930, wth the success of the rodeo the year before, the Red Lodge Rodeo Association was formed. In 1932, the Association acquired 180 acres of land and they went to work building a new arena and grandstand at its present location. In 1954, after local cowboy Bill Linderman won his third World All Around Champion Title, the name"HOME OF CHAMPIONS" was adopted

The Stroll starts at 6pm with the increasingly popular Blade Parade - Friday Night Only - (who knew there were so many ways to decorate a snowplow?) and stores stay open until around 9pm. So bundle up the kids and bring your holiday shopping list. It`s a perfect recipe for enjoying the holiday season: Ski, Stroll, & Stay the night.
