The warm weather is here in Vancouver and it is already starting to feel like Summer and when the warm weather comes our way you know the Cloverdale Rodeo is just around the corner! This year marks the 72nd annual Cloverdale Rodeo and 130th annual Country Fair and visitors can once again expect British Columbia’s most beloved annual tradition to be an action-packed weekend full of family fun.
There is always a bunch of fun to be had at the Cloverdale rodeo!
Best part is this year there will be more of everything; more entertainment, more competitions and even more food choices for everyone to enjoy. This year will be one of the best for the rodeo and you wont want to miss out. The Cloverdale Invitational Rodeo will feature three rough stock rodeo events: Bareback, Saddle Bronc, Bull Riding, and Ladies Barrel Racing. Cloverdale’s youngest athletes will get their chance to compete when Mutton Bustin’ takes centre stage during all five Rodeo performances.
Families will once again have a blast in the Country Fair with the Envision Financial Kids Zone, Agri Zone and Douglas Lake Equipment Zone, formerly the Cone Zone. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the S&R Sawmills West Coast Lumberjack Show, the BC Country Music Association Pavilion, the seventh annual World Freestyle Roundup Skateboarding Competition, Ram Truck Test Drive, B.C.’s largest travelling Midway, and the spectacular Art Knapp Outdoor Living Pavilion. Once again making this year one of the most jam packed rodeo’s they’ve ever put together.
The Longhorn Saloon, open daily from 4pm to 2am to the 19+ crowd, is proud to present live performances including the Ken McCoy Band, Ettinger & Big 50 and everybody’s favorite: the Chris Buck Band. People of all ages at the rodeo can catch performances on The Lordco Auto Parts Outdoor Entertainment Stage where you can two step the night away to the likes of: The Heels, Whiskey Jane, Rosemary & The Sweet Sound Revival, and more. They will even be hosting a mascot dance party nightly starting at 6pm which will be super fun for the whole family! The BC Country Music Association (BCCMA) will even be hosting an impressive pavilion that will include a meet-and-greet with BCCMA artists throughout the May Long Weekend. Called Boots and Buckles, this Pavilion is open to all ages and is free until 8pm when it will transform into a live music dance hall for 19+ Fair attendees.
