For exciting rodeo action that is quality family entertainment, plan now to attend Quesnel’s Rodeo Event of the year at Alex Fraser Park. This rodeo weekend will reflect and honor our proud western heritage as we live our western traditions. You know it going to be an exciting and entertaining weekend when British Columbia’s top cowboys, cowgirls and young buckaroos go head to head against each other and the roughest and toughest bulls and bucking horses we could find. In addition to the traditional rodeo events, we are proud to include the “Hang’n on for life” Wild Horse Race; the chaos of Wild Cow Milking; the pounding hooves of the Flat Races and young buckaroos “hang’n on and drag’n , in the dirt” during the Wild Pony Race. New this year is Regency Chrysler’s Mutton Bustin'. One of Canada’s newest and exciting trick riders, Rebecca Parkin with her horse Chance from Sundre Alberta will be performing during each rodeo performance.
Friday’s rodeo performance starts at 6:00PM. If you are “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” feel free to join in with the cowboys and cowgirls and wear pink in support of the brave women and men in our community who every day battle breast cancer and it’s terrible effects.
