4th of July Rodeo

July 3 & 4 – Summertime in the Madison Valley starts with the salmon-fly hatch on the Madison, but it really gets into high gear when the rodeo hits town on the 3rd of July!  Red, white and blue bunting, flags and flowers hang from the shops on Main Street. Rough stock arrives and grazes on the pasture by the rodeo grounds.   Cowboys roll through town with their rigs and also head for the rodeo grounds, hoping this week brings a good draw and a great ride.

The popular rodeo has been held on the Ennis Rodeo Grounds since the early 1950s. In the mid-1900s, the first rodeos were held on Main Street which was then a dirt road.

So grab the family and head on down to the rodeo grounds for the night rodeo on July 3rd and come on back on July 4th for the finals.  There’s plenty of food and beer being served up by local non-profit groups who work hard to help the community with the money earned at the rodeo.  The VFW and Lion’s Club sell beer and water, sponsored by Budweiser.  Popcorn, burgers, hot dogs and more to keep everyone satisfied.
