2024 SCHEDULE (tentative)

“All of the main details will remain the same as 2023; all camping will be inside the Keystone Centre grounds and all horses will be stalled (MANDATORY) on site in the beautiful attached barns. We will be running 2 separate arenas, the daily schedule will be TENTAVILEY the same as last year. The ACE arena (indoor arena) we will be hosting the Cutting, Reined Cow horse, Barrels, Poles and Goats with the remainder of the events running (at the same time) in the large outdoor arena just to the east of the ACE arena. This was very successful last year and we felt very effective in helping us run a faster rodeo leaving more time for families to enjoy themselves while in Brandon. Our goal remains to run a professional well run rodeo all while creating an overall enjoyable experience for all of the families attending.

The event will kick off Wednesday July 31st with the Canadian High School Rodeo Finals in both the light rifle and trap shooting respectively. Both of these events are only 1 day and both are to be held in Brandon area (more details to follow).”
