The Kiwanis Club of Statesboro has announced its 10th Annual Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo Event in April 2021
The Rodeo is to be held on April 23 and 24, 2021. Ticket prices will be $14 in advance for adults. At the gate, adult tickets will cost $18. Tickets for children ages 6-14 are $10 in advance, $12 at the gate. Children aged 5 and under are free with the purchase of an adult ticket. The Rodeo will be hosted at the Bulloch County Agricultural Complex located at 44 Arena Boulevard, Statesboro, GA 30458.
The Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo Committee and its Board of Directors voted to move the annual rodeo to the Ag Complex in early March and is part of an in-kind trade with Bulloch County and the Statesboro Bulloch County Parks and Recreation Department.
Camp Cherokee, the annual summer camp held by SBCPRD, will be using the Kiwanis Community Building for the summer camp in the months of June and July.
“The Statesboro Kiwanis Club is excited to partner with the Bulloch County Agricultural Complex and Statesboro Bulloch County Parks and Recreation Department,” said Kiwanis Club President Ashlee Corbin. “The focus of Kiwanis International is to ‘improve the world, one child and one community at a time’ what better way to serve the children in our community besides allowing a summer camp to utilize our facility?”
In exchange for the usage of the Community Building, the Kiwanis Club will be hosting their 10th Annual Rodeo at the Bulloch County Agricultural Arena.
“We are very thankful for this new partnership with the Kiwanis Club on two very important events in our community—the Rodeo and Summer Day Camp,” says Eddie Canon, Parks and Recreation Director. “Providing safe, fun events is a priority for both of our organizations, which is how we partner successfully on many events throughout the year.”
Advance tickets are available at Anderson’s General Store located at 23736 US Highway 80, Statesboro, GA 30461.
The Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo is a fundraiser hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Statesboro. All profits are donated back into the community of Statesboro and surrounding area. The Rodeo is one of two main fundraisers hosted by Statesboro Kiwanis.
The rodeo was cancelled in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic along with the club’s annual Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair. The cancellation of the two events impacted the club and its annual giving.
“We are excited to be able to host our annual rodeo because we feel like people are looking for something fun to do! We are planning to keep our community as safe as possible and will have some COVID-precautionary measures in place,” said Corbin.
Sponsors for the 10th Annual Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo include: The Statesboro Herald, Northland Cable, JC Lewis Ford Lincoln of Statesboro and Anderson’s General Store. Many other community sponsors are involved with the Statesboro Kiwanis Club.
Statesboro Kiwanis Club President Ashlee Corbin says “The Statesboro Kiwanis Rodeo is an event geared toward entertaining the community and offering people a chance to see something that isn’t offered frequently in our area. Danny Hedrick and his team put on a great show and the club loves showing Miss Rodeo USA around our beautiful town.”
In its tenth year, the rodeo will bring championship professional competition, with riders from all over the world competing in bull riding, bronc riding, calf roping, barrel racing and more. The family-oriented rodeo will also include some fun kids’ events, Miss Rodeo USA 2021 Kylee Campbell, and lots of exceptional bulls and bucking horses raised by Hedrick himself.
