Action aplenty at the Ross Rodeo

Shared by

For a slice of old-fashioned family fun this weekend why not make your way out to the Ross Rodeo in east central Tasmania?

The wonderful annual event takes place Saturday February 4 at Badajos Street in Ross, with gates opening at 08:00 and the major drawcard of the day – the big rodeo event – getting underway at midday.

A comprehensive list of events is on the schedule including bull riding, bareback bronco riding, saddlebronc, steer wrestling, roping and barrel racing.

Spectators of all ages are bound to have a wonderful day out as there will be a huge variety of activities for everyone to enjoy.

There will be the historical machinery club of Tasmania, Eddie Freeman chainsaw sculptures, the Australian miniature horse registry, a whip cracking display and the always popular dog high jump.

When the summer sun comes out over the local fields Ross is a delightful place to spend the afternoon – and every year this event brings the whole region to life with excitement and a great carnival atmosphere.

The rodeo is strictly no BYO and unfortunately no dogs are permitted either, but with free admission this is definitely one Tasmanian event not to miss this February.
