2017 marks the 20th year of the Lyon County Fair PRCA Rodeo. In this short time this rodeo has become a popular stop for over 200 contestants a year to compete as they work to win a spot in the circuit or national finals. Our rodeo features Bareback and saddle broncs, tie down roping, team roping, steer wrestling, Barrel racing and bull riding. The kids aren’t left out as we do mutton busting both nights. Working with the Barnes Pro Rodeo for the last 20 years we have forged a strong bond and developed into a top rate rodeo that the fans have come to expect and enjoy. This rodeo has twice been recognized by the WPRA as the most improved arena of the year.
This year will be no different as we have a top quality clown and specialty act in Tim “wild thing” Lepard and his trained dogs and Capuchin Monkies this act has perform all over the United States they have done football half times and hockey games.
The announcer this year is none other than Kelly Kenney we are happy to have him back in our arena after a long absence.
Every year there are many contestants at the national finals that have been contestants in our arena. Two of the top ranked bareback riders have been here Tim O Connell the current world Champion and Tanner Aus from nearby Granite Falls who is currently ranked in the top three.
An Added Feature of our Rodeo is our Tough Enough TO Wear Pink Night which is always held on Friday night. We hold a live auction during the rodeo to raise money for our local TETWP partner to date we have raised nearly 20,000 dollars in the last eight years.
This is a definite must see event as we get you up close and personal with the action.
