Welcome to the Smithers Rodeo Club website. Please take the time to go through the various pages dedicated to rodeo in Smithers! On this site you will learn terminology, rules and see how the rodeo stock is cared for and raised.
Also on this site are links to our valued sponsors, many of whom have been with us since we re-kindled the club in 2002! You will also find links to our associationin partnership; the Bulkley Valley Exhibition (95 years young) and the BC Rodeo Association who is our sanctioning body for the rodeo.
Smithers rodeo is one of 20 plus rodeos held in BC each year with cowboys and cowgirls travelling from one end of the province to another to attend. New for this year we have added two new events to our rodeo lineup; Pee-Wee barrels for the under 10 year olds and junior breakaway roping. Besides new competitors in these events you will see their siblings and parents competing as well. Rodeo truly is a family sport!
Take a glance at our entertainment this year, our half time show is Niki Flundra, horsewoman extraordinaire; who is a 7x NFR performer! For those of you who take in our popular Rodeo dance on Saturday night after the rodeo performance; we are pleased to be bringing in The Johnson Bros, they promise to country rock n roll us all night long. They will also be playing at the fair on Friday and Sunday for anyone who isn’t going to attend the dance.
Watch for our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SmithersRodeoClub) which will be interactive with this website and the blog, keeping you informed of all things rodeo and fair related. We will be featuring different sponsors there weekly and keep you up to date on the great rodeo program prizes that you can win at the rodeo.
