The Okotoks Pro Rodeo is held annually. 2017 is our 26th year! Our non-profit Rodeo is produced entirely by volunteers. We host contestants and visitors from all parts of Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia. We take over the Town of Okotoks with western themed events and activities for the whole family.
Rodeo is a part of a very unique lifestyle, a tradition handed down from our forefathers who developed various events and evolved them into competitions of individuals and animals competing against their neighboring ranches to see whose 'outfit' had the most skilled cowhands and the best animals. The Okotoks Pro Rodeo brings the same competition, skill and excitement to our guests for you to see how a part of the west was won.
The Okotoks Pro Rodeo is sanctioned by the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association - CPRA, with co-sanctioning by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association - PRCA and a part of the Grass Roots Rodeo Series. Our rodeo is one of the last important stops for contestants vying to qualify for the Canadian Finals Rodeo (CFR) - held in the late fall of each year.
Our volunteers organize and host a great community rodeo with 7 Professional Events and 3 other exciting events:
We promise 3 action packed days guaranteed to entertain young and old alike.

Please see our contact page for information on Advertising, Sponsorships or if you have any questions. Our volunteers and executive board members would like to thank all our advertisers and sponsors - who without their generous assistance we could not produce our Rodeo. Please visit our Sponsors and Advertisers page and when you do shop - please give these generous sponsors your patronage.
We are volunteer driven and run - thus any realized funds after expenditures are put back into the community through disbursement to service groups and clubs - so they may contribute to community programs.
