The 14th annual Dubuque-Wisconsin High School Rodeo competition will be May 20-21 at the Dubuque County Fair Grounds/Tri-State Equine Park.

Runde Auto Group is a proud sponsor of the free pony rides prior to each rodeo!

“One thing that is really wonderful about this event is that it brings something different to the community that families and people of any age can enjoy,” said Heidi Gansen, a member of the event committee. “There are so many different events within the rodeo, activities for the kids before and during, and a delicious food stand on site! Best of all, we are keeping alive an over 100-year American tradition with the sport of rodeo; which is based on sportsmanship, dedication, teamwork, family and respect.”

You can get $5 advance tickets at Longhorn Saddlery in Dubuque and at Theisen’s stores in Dubuque, Dyersville, and Maquoketa. Admission at the gate is $8 for adults, $5 for ages 7 to 17, and free for children 6 years old and younger.
