Rim Country residents are VERY proud of being able to host the World’s Oldest Continuous Rodeo. 2022 marks the event’s 138th 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 of years ago, I even 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 and 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 get your Boot Scootin' Boogie on!
The rodeo this year is August 18-20th. Click here for the full rodeo schedule, entry fees, and other information.
As of today, we still have cottages and rooms available for Rodeo weekend, but they won’t last! Click here to book your stay!
If you see us there this year, make sure to say “Howdy!”
