The action packed weekend includes Barrel Racing on Friday night, a full RAM Rodeo Tour performance on Saturday and Sunday, FREE live music Saturday night with Canadian country music recording artist Ty Baynton, a horseshoe tournament, beach volleyball and all things cowboy. Don't miss the Cowboy Classic Show & Shine Car Show on Sunday. Two kids have a chance to win 2 brand new bikes during the intermission during Saturday and Sunday's performance! Great food and vendors have been lined up and volunteers are being recruited. Save the date, invite friends and family because we'll be ropin', ridin' and rockin' in the Valley!

ATTENTION EQUESTRIANS! 
On Saturday August 19th, 2017 the Grand River Rodeo is hosting the first ever RODEO PARADE. The parade will begin at noon and go up Main St. in Grand Valley to the rodeo site. We are inviting equestrians of all sorts (clubs, groups, schools, individuals, western, English, etc.) to join us for this great event. 

As an incentive there will be door prizes for participants and everyone who rides or drives a horse in the parade will get free admission to the rodeo. We will have a horse-drawn covered wagon in the parade and the Grand Valley Fire Department is looking for a team to pull their antique Bickle Fire Pumper, with some luck they will be in the parade too. 

Each year the Grand River Rodeo chooses a different charity to be the benefactor of our fundraising efforts. This year the Grand River Rodeo is supporting 4-H Dufferin and 4-H Ontario.
