Mark the third weekend in August on your calendars—it's rodeo time! That means August 16 & 17, 2019.
Beginning Friday afternoon/evening, the annual Didsbury Fair and FCA Rodeo is a top-notch event, complete with concessions, games for the kids, and beer gardens.
After the Friday night show, stick around! Once the sun goes down, you are treated to the best fireworks show around, with up-front seats. Thunder on the Prairies never ceases to amaze spectators, as the sky lights up and the music echoes across the Grounds...it is an experience you won't soon forget.
The FCA rodeo continues,with another performance on Saturday, and always delivers great entertainment as skilled contestants match up against some of the best stock around. There are, of course, all the fan-favourite events that make a rodeo a rodeo, such as:
Saddle bronc riding
And, there is the wild pony race and mutton busting for the kids and, for everyone's entertainment...wild cow milking!
The rodeo clown will keep you laughing between events, and the kids can take a ride around the grounds in an open-car train, or get their faces painted with fantastic designs.
While at the grounds, you can enjoy some great food (yes, there will be mini donuts, lemonade, hot dogs and tacos) or take in the action from the shade of the beer gardens. However you choose to enjoy the rodeo weekend, we know you will have a great time—see you there!
Stay tuned for more information about registering for mutton bustin` and wild cow milking.
We welcome a great addition to the rodeo for 2019...
