From bucking broncs to the antics of rodeo clowns to cowgirls racing the clock in barrel racing, the Sheridan WYO Rodeo is sure to provide entertainment and excitement for the entire family.

Sheridan’s premiere event, held each July at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds, is a staple of summer in this Wyoming town. The rodeo is sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association. For six years, it has been an elite Million Dollar Tour Silver Rodeo, making it one of the top 30 rodeos in the nation.

This year will mark the 85th year of a rodeo that has become a major stop on the rodeo trail for some of the world’s top cowboys and cowgirls.

From July 8-11, locals and visitors will be able to enjoy four action-packed rodeo performances, highlighted by the heart-pounding and wildly popular World Championship Indian Relay Races.

The fun doesn’t stop in the arena, though.

Rodeo week, scheduled for July 5-12, lights up the town with events sure to delight young and old alike. Make sure to take part in the boot kick-off competition, a parade down Main Street, a pancake breakfast that feeds hundreds, a golf tournament, bed races, duck races, street dances, live concerts, a powwow, carnival rides and games and more.
