The fun is about to break out of the chutes at the St. Paul Rodeo!
For the 85th year, the Nation’s Greatest Rodeo will take place June 30-July 4, and tickets are on sale now!
The rodeo is the biggest event in the small town of St. Paul, and one of the top twenty largest rodeos in the nation.
Fans know it best for the fun it provides. Rodeo clown JJ Harrison will be on hand to provide the laughs, and the Full Throttle trick riders will entertain in flashy sequined costumes, while they do gymnastic stunts on the backs of galloping horses!
And the food! The St. Paul Rodeo is known for its homemade strawberry shortcake, complete with locally grown berries and a big dollop of whipped cream on top! Plus, there’s barbecue chicken, cotton candy, popcorn, and more!
It’s good to be able to rodeo and invite fans to return, said Cindy Schonholtz, general manager of the St. Paul Rodeo, who has an informal “theme” for this year’s rodeo: “More fun in ’21.”
“We are proud to be a family celebration where moms and dads, kids and grandkids, grandmas and granddads can get together, enjoy each other’s company, and celebrate Independence Day.”
Tickets range in price from $16 to $26, not including a convenience fee, and can be purchased online at StPaulRodeo.com
“Come and celebrate with us at the St. Paul Rodeo,” Schonholtz said.
Rodeo performances are at 7:30 pm nightly, June 30-July 4, with a 1:30 pm matinee on July 4.
