The 27th Annual Okotoks Pro Rodeo, will no longer be held in Okotoks.
President of the Okotoks Annual Pro Rodeo show, Renne Reidy has announced that the venue will be moving to a new home at the Millarville Race Track.
Reidy says: "We have outgrown our location in Okotoks and have found a facility that will not only support our current Rodeo but allow for our future growth with more spectators, activities and vendors. The location has changed, but we will still feature the same exciting non-stop action you have grown to love. Our name, the Okotoks Pro Rodeo is unchanged, as we continue to promote Okotoks and the surrounding community from our new venue."
Reidy says he's excited about what the future has in store for the event: "We are very excited about our potential for future growth of the Okotoks Pro Rodeo. In our
new venue we will take advantage of a beautiful 2500 seat stadium, ample parking, camping facilities and opportunities to add other events as we grow. The Okotoks
Pro Rodeo Society Board have many additions planned and are happy to have the cooperation of the Millarville Racing & Agricultural Society.
Marketing Director Trevor Reidy says: "The new location will allow for more features, such as youth programs, campgrounds and numbered seating."
The rodeo will take place August 24,25 and 26, 2018 and will feature saddlebronc riding, bareback, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, ladies barrel racing, team roping and bull riding.
