It’s Time for Gilbert Days Rodeo 2019!

It is that time again, for Gilbert Days Rodeo 2019! Once known as “The Hay Capital of the World,” Gilbert, Arizona was founded on agriculture. Honoring its agricultural history, the Gilbert Days Rodeo Committee goes above and beyond to put on an outstanding event that is great for the whole family. Falling on November 22-24, 2019, this will be the first rodeo that counts towards the 2020 GCPRA standings. 

Gilbert has been celebrating the entire month of November with the “Gilbert Days” celebration. With festivals, a parade, and, of course, the Gilbert Days Rodeo, are just a few of the activities that folks can attend and participate in. The Gilbert Promotional Corporation (GPC) is the moving force behind the popular Gilbert Days Rodeo. Made up entirely of volunteers, this Non-Profit Organization has been organizing, maintaining, and producing the Gilbert Days Rodeo since 1978. 

Gilbert Days Rodeo is an integral part of the town’s history and is the result of hard work, planning, and love for the sport of rodeo all year-round. As Gilbert, Arizona quickly grows and continues to develop, the GPC is nurturing and keeping Gilbert’s history alive through the annual Gilbert Days Rodeo. The 2019 Gilbert Days Royalty Court includes Gilbert Days Rodeo Queen Tatum and Teen Queen Anna. These two girls make it a priority to encourage rodeo fans to share their kind deed stories and to always “Kick up Kindness” in everything you do! You can catch them out at the rodeo all weekend long!

As for the event itself, it will take place on November 22nd, 23rd, and 24th at the John Volken Academy located at 26601 South Val Vista Drive, Gilbert, Arizona 85298. Each Grand Canyon Professional Rodeo Association (GCPRA) Performance will be jam-packed with the most exciting rodeo entertainment that the entire family can enjoy. For the little cowboys and cowgirls in the family, a ‘Lil Dudes Rodeo will be held each day before the main rodeo performance on November 22nd and 23rd. The ‘Lil Dudes finals will take place in the main rodeo arena on the 24th. In addition to thrilling rodeo action and entertaining clown acts, food, drink, and shopping vendors will be present for fans to grab a bite to eat and shop around in between events.
