Hospitality Tent

Cowboy hospitality provides an area for the stock contractors, judges, contestants and rodeo personnel to have a hot meal, snacks and beverages during their stay. Our hospitality tent is located on the west end of the grounds by contestant parking. The tent opens two hours before each rodeo performance and closes at bull riding to prepare for the After Party dance.  Each performance is shown via live feed in the tent. You must show a contestant hospitality band to enter the Hospitality Tent. You can get this from the Secretary’s office when you check in.

Equine Accommodations

No stalls are available on-site. Parking is limited so stalls with your trailer cannot be larger than 10 x 10.
