Sisters Rodeo

Sisters Rodeo is saddled up and ready to spur out of the chutes in the 83rd running of “The Biggest Little Show in the World.”

Events get started with the rip-snortin’ excitement of Xtreme Bulls on Wednesday, June 7. Thursday is slack, then the main event bursts onto the scene Friday through Sunday, June 9-11.

The all-volunteer Sisters Rodeo Association continues to enhance the audience and contestant experience at the Rodeo. They have installed new low-energy, high-output LED lamps that dramatically improve illumination for the June 7-11 event. The lights make for a better experience for attendees of evening performances — and illuminate the arena for high-definition TV coverage. Once again, the Sisters Rodeo will be live telecast on the Cowboy Channel and RFD TV.

The Sisters Rodeo is on the pro tour — an acknowledgement that the event is among the top PRCA rodeos in the country.

Each rodeo performance starts with the Wild Horse Race, and this year the purse is a record $14,000. That wild and wooly event is the featured image on this year’s event poster created by Sisters artist Dyrk Godby.

This year marks the return of  specialty act Tomas Garcilazo, representing the tradition of “La Charreria” which is a skill performed through the generations only by the Mexican charro. Charros take extreme pride in their highly developed horsemanship and roping abilities.

The Saturday Rodeo Parade on June 10, starting at 9:30 a.m. in downtown Sisters, will be led by Queen Sadie Bateman. 

“She’s quite a cowgirl,” said Hank Moss of the Rodeo board. “She’s not just a queen — she can rope and ride, too.”
