Sisters Rodeo earns award

Sisters Rodeo recently received the prestigious award “Large Rodeo of the Year” chosen by the Board of Directors of the Columbia River Circuit, which includes 32 of the best PRCA rodeos throughout the Pacific Northwest.

The Columbia River Circuit Finals Rodeo and Annual Meeting were held in Yakima, Washington on January 10-12, 2020. Sisters Rodeo was represented by four members of their Board of Directors: Curt Kallberg, Chris Schaad, Rodger Dwight and Patty Cordoni, who were proud to receive the plaque in an arena presentation.

When asked what makes the Sisters Rodeo stand out, President Curt Kallberg mentioned not only the outstanding volunteers, stock, competitors, and professional staff including the ever-popular J.J. Harrison, but also that “fans don’t come to see our rodeo, they are a part of our rodeo.”

This winning formula seems to bring back enthusiastic crowds every year and arena sell-outs have become the norm.

Sisters Rodeo celebrates its 80th anniversary, June 10-14; tickets are now on sale at or through the ticket office at 541-549-0121.
