Rodeo Dayz returns to Three Forks
July 14, 2021
It's once again time for the Rodeo Dayz Celebration in Three Forks.
The popular annual event will return in 2021 with three days of events headlined by the annual Three Forks NRA Rodeo scheduled for Friday, July 16, and Saturday, July 17.
Three Forks Rodeo Arena Board Member Chuck Wambeke said they are more than enthused to have the event back in 2021 and expect a great crowd, and that attendance will help the finances for the bleacher project.
The theme for 2021 is Celebrating 75 Years of Rodeo, and the Grand Marshal will be Three Forks Rodeo Icons (Rodeo Volunteers).
The event will kick off Thursday, July 15, at the Three Forks Farmer's Market at John Q Adams Milwaukee Park. The popular stick horse rodeo is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the market. Chamber Executive Director Melissa Jenkins said the stick horse rodeo is always well attended and lauded the gracious sponsors for this year's event.
