Rim Country residents are VERY proud of being able to host the World’s Oldest Continuous Rodeo. 2023 marks the event’s 139th year! You can read the full backstory of the Payson rodeo by clicking here. Our family looks forward to the event every single year, and this year is no exception. A couple years ago, I got to meet a real, live rodeo bullfighter!
The Payson Rodeo is fun for the whole family. For kids, the event includes “Mutton Bustin’” and Jr. Steer Riding. If your kids are brave and willing to try something different, this is definitely an experience they will remember forever. We always love browsing the different merchandise booths. My girls always find the cutest cowgirl hats!
Want to make a date night out of it? Friday night at Saturday night following the rodeo events, is the Boots and Bling Dance at the Payson Event Center! Grab your snazziest cowboy boots and get ready to boot, scoot, and boogie.
The rodeo this year is August 17-19st. Click here for the full rodeo schedule, entry fees, and other information.
If you see us there this year, make sure to say “Howdy!”
