Twin Falls Rodeo

Late July and August are packed with events, but for a real taste of Idaho, nothing beats a rodeo. Here’s your roundup (see what we did there?) of Southern Idaho’s rodeos, from small-town affairs to arena fillers.

Cassia County Fair and Rodeo, Aug. 18-20
One of Cassia County’s most cherished and celebrated events, this fair features rides, livestock exhibits, cotton candy — and a fine rodeo. The rodeo comes complete with a kids’ night, family night, motorcycle and ATV competitions, and Wrangler Night (first 200 attendees will receive hat stickers from Wrangler).

Gooding Professional Rodeo, Aug. 18-20
This award-winning rodeo transforms the small city of Gooding into a cowboy mecca thanks to a roster of world-class talent, including more than a 100 competitors who have been national finalists or world champions. Thousands of people turn out not just for the rodeo, but for the fair that accompanies it, along with the 4-H and FFA market animal sale. If you’re looking for a true Western fair and rodeo, Gooding is your place.

Twin Falls County Fair and Magic Valley Stampede, Aug. 31-Sept. 5
Celebrating its 100th anniversary, attendees can see monster trucks, a demolition derby, classic country, and a fast-paced rodeo. It’s all at this Magic Valley celebration. Check out traditional fair competitions like animal showings and bake-offs, thrill yourself on a daredevil amusement ride, and — of course — watch cowboys and cowgirls risk it all during the PRCA rodeo. Be sure to get your tickets: This rodeo averages 13,000 people.
