Contest! Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair - May 17 - 20, 2013

The 67th annual Cloverdale Rodeo and 125th Country Fair invites you to “get back to country” this May long weekend, May 17-20, 2013. With just one month to go, it’s time to pull on those boots, saddle up, and get ready to hit the dusty trail to Cloverdale for some of the best entertainment around.

For the first time, the Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair is offering free admission for kidsaged 12-and-under to all Rodeo Performances as well as to the Country Fair grounds, making this event more affordable for families than ever. Also, all guests can save $2 on Grounds Admission when they buy at select London Drugs and Big O Tire stores, and save $2 on a combination of Rodeo and Grounds Admission online.

The Cloverdale Rodeo is one of the world’s top ten rodeos and features a unique event lineup, known as the ‘Cloverdale Invitational.’ With a total of $328,000 in prize money up for grabs, the event consists of four highly competitive, skill-testing categories – Bareback, Saddle Bronc, Bull Riding and Ladies Barrel Racing – featuring the world’s top-ranked cowboys and cowgirls. While at the Stetson Bowl, enjoy daily performances by renowned BCCMA recording artist Kenny Hess, as well as award-winning rope artist Tomas Garcilazo.

At the Country Fair, presented by Coast Capital Savings, savour the mouthwatering flavours of the Cloverdale Cowboy Cookoff BBQ Competition and Rib Fest. This first event of its kind in Canada combines traditional Southern-style BBQ Competition with Rib Fest, for one delicious event you won’t want to miss. Also, check out the 2nd annual World Freestyle Round-Up Skateboard Championships, returning to Cloverdale with its impressive pool of international athletes, like Spain’s Kilian Martin and USA’s Darryl Grogan.

Don’t miss a fun-filled lineup of entertainment in the Kidz Zone as Judi the Manners Ladytakes the stage. Explore over 18,000 square feet of games, interactive displays, songs, dance, art and endless fun. Outside the Kidz Zone, youth aged 10-16 are invited to experience the new Cone Zone Go-Kart ride, where they’ll drive around a large track complete with real-world hazards like trucks, cranes and roadside workers.

Test your own endurance as you take a spin around BC’s largest travelling midway, and after the sun goes down, stay to enjoy live entertainment in the famous Longhorn Saloon, with nightly performances by The Ken McCoy Band and Dr. Strangelove. Also catch incredible performances on the Mainland Group Outdoor Stage all weekend long. There’s also something new for teens at the Country Fair: the new Youth Live Band Stage, where teens can enjoy free-with-admission evening entertainment from some of the Fraser Valley’s top up-and-coming bands and DJ’s.
