Pull your hat down and cowboy up! Born in the past to ease the cowboys’ boredom, today’s rodeos are pure excitement. Bareback riding, team roping, saddle bronc riding, breakaway roping, bull riding, and a special calf scramble for the kids are just some of the scheduled events at the Wild West Yellowstone Rodeo just a few minutes west of town. The rodeo takes place Wednesday through Saturday evenings from mid-June through August; please check out Wild West Yellowstone Rodeo’s website or Facebook page for the current schedule. If you just can’t get enough, also be sure to check out the nearby Meadow Vue Ranch for their rodeos, which offer a look at the cowboy way of life for the whole family.
