Kick-off Your Summer at the Cloverdale Rodeo!


Don your spurs, saddle-up, and head on over to the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair happening this coming May Long Weekend, May 17-20th, at the Cloverdale Fair Grounds (6050 176 Street)! This fun, lively festival has plenty of family events & entertainment to choose from, whether you want to watch some of the world’s best & bravest bull riders, test your mettle yourself on a mechanical bull, or watch some cowboys duke it out in a good ol’ fashioned cook-off. (Enter to win tickets for 4 below!)

The Cloverdale Invitational Rodeo will feature Roughstock Rodeo Events (Bareback, Saddle Bronc & Bull Riding) and Ladies Barrel Racing. The top twenty-two rodeo contestants in each event (as per the 2012 World Final Standings), 2012 Cloverdale Invitational Rodeo Champions & 2012 Canadian Pro Rodeo Champions are invited to participate at the Cloverdale Invitational Rodeo, so you can see the best in the West…North, South, and East. The events will happen through the duration of May 17-20th (view the schedule) culminating in the Rodeo Finals on Monday, starting at 3pm. The rodeo finals will also feature renowned country-singer Kenny Hess, who has shared the stage with big names like Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Merle Haggard, Tanya Tucker, Brooks & Dunn, as well as a performance by Trick Rope artist Tomas Garcilazo.

The 125th annual Country Fair promises more family-friendly entertainment than ever before, complete with the Fraser Valley’s largest Midway with tons of rides and games for the whole family (including mechanical bull riding!), a World Freestyle Skateboarding round-up, an Outdoor Entertainment Stage and interactive Kidz Zone! With the event sprawled out over a large area, you might want to check out the Grounds Map Layout to plan your adventure!
