Nation’s Greatest Fourth of July Rodeo in St Paul for 84th year
St. Paul, Ore. (December 14, 2018) – Tickets are on sale for the Nation’s Greatest Fourth of July Rodeo and a fan favorite, the St. Paul Rodeo!
The bulls and the horses, the cowboys and the cowgirls stampede into tiny St. Paul, Oregon, July 2-6 for six performances of rodeo competition.
It’s the great American tradition of rodeo, on America’s birthday, July Fourth, with the independent determination of the American cowboy and cowgirl matching up against bulls and broncs, or working in tandem with the American Quarter Horse!
The St. Paul Rodeo, in its 84th year, is a tradition for many people in the Portland and Willamette Valley area. More than 50,000 people attend the rodeo and its related festivities each year, swelling the population of the village more than one-hundred times over the five day run!
The rodeo takes place each evening July 2-6 at 7:30 pm, with two performances on July 4, including a 1:30 pm matinee.
There’s more than rodeo going on in St. Paul during the holiday. Fireworks follow each evening rodeo performance and the Tack Room Saloon, voted one of the top twenty cowboy bars in the West, is full of fans looking to whet their whistle. The smell of barbecue wafts from the Great Western Barbecue Cook-off, and the parade takes place on July Fourth.
The Wild West Art Show beckons those looking for fine arts and crafts, and a family activity day is scheduled for the morning of the Fourth.
Rodeo seating is reserved, so purchasing tickets early is encouraged. Tickets range in price from $16 to $26 (plus a convenience fee) and can be purchased online at www.StPaulRodeo.com and at the ticket office after May 1.
The rodeo is a fundraiser for many service and youth organizations around the area; it is produced by nearly one hundred percent volunteer labor.
