Airdrie Rodeo.  

Posted by Wyatt


When school ends everyone around is ready for the Airdrie Pro Rodeo. Every year, World and Canadian Champs are part of our record number of contestant entries at the Airdrie Pro Rodeo. In 2010, Airdrie Rodeo had more cowboys and cowgirls than at any other Canadian Professional Rodeo Association event. We are proud to be the 7th largest professional rodeo by payout in Canada and 2011 marks our 44th year of rodeo in Airdrie.
 The Airdrie Pro Rodeo is just a short 20 minute drive from Calgary and has more than 10,000 spectators coming through our gates over five days of rodeo action. At the rodeo you’ll see contestants compete in Bull Riding, Bareback, Saddlebronc, Team Roping, Tie Down Roping, Ladies Barrel Racing, Steer Wrestling, Boys Steer Riding, and Junior rodeo events. The grounds offer live music every night, beer gardens, free parking, free camping, children’s activities and more.

Our family is a active volunteer at the Airdrie Rodeo for the past 30 years. And it is because of volunteers the it is Canada's seventh larges rodeo.   If you look at the photo below you will see my father in blue. My cousin Colby in the grey shirt and the my Uncle Russ  in black with letters on his sleeve.
