2012 Cloverdale Rodeo – Win Tickets

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

It’s baaaaack! The 66th annual Cloverdale Rodeo and Country Fair, one of the top ten rodeo events in the world, takes place May 18-21, 2012 at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds in Surrey. Festivities start off on Thursday, May 17th with the Cloverdale Bed Races & Decorated Bike Parade. This is always fun to attend and a great way to prepare for the long weekend of festivities!

Guests will find lots of new events at this year’s rodeo and fair, including the first-ever Cloverdale Cowboy Cook-Off which will pit world-renowned BBQ chefs in a mouth-watering competition where they can win $10,000! Also new this year is the World Freestyle Round-Up powered by ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK – a skateboard competition with the world’s top freestyle skateboarders from all over the globe. Another daring group, the Pacific Northwest Ponies will thrill crowds on Friday Night with their Mini Chuck Wagon & Chariot Races.  If you miss them Friday night, you can still catch these Crazy Ponies as part of the halftime show during the Rodeo events. Plus don’t miss millions of dollars in vintage rides at the first-ever Classic Car Show.

This year’s Rodeo features world champions and Canadian champions competing against some fierce young up-and-comers in four main events: Bareback, Bull Riding, Ladies Barrel Racing and Saddle Bronc. The invitational format continues to draw top names and provides consistently challenging bucking stock. Top pro rodeo contestants in each of the four events will compete for $300,000 in cash prizes – and more importantly – the championship title.

The Country Fair is the perfect place for families to enjoy a full, fun, exciting day out. The Fraser Valley’s largest midway features a wide variety of rides and games for the whole family. Plus, there is an interactive Kidz Zone with daily appearances from Dora the Explorer, a sports zone, animal displays in the Agri Zone, mechanical bull riding, an outdoor entertainment stage and more. Be sure to check out the new Dinotown exhibit and meet stars Dee Dee and Dexter Bones!

Where to play as the sun goes down? The world-famous Longhorn Saloon – always a hit with local country music lovers! Ken McCoy and his band will take to the stage, along with Dr. Strangelove, Jaydee Bixby, Bon Jovi Tribute and Nearly Neil.

    I’ve been going to the Cloverdale Rodeo for years!
    It’s been a huge part of my childhood, and always been one of my favourite weekends to spend with friends and family. Unfortunately my first year of college hasn’t left much extra room in my budget, so it’s unlikely that I will be able to attend this year. I would love to win tickets and have an opportunity to go!
