The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Rodeo is one of the few community events that bring together residents, business owners, city and county officials, and law enforcement for one purpose – strengthening community ties and creating just plain fun!
The 17th Annual P.R.C.A Sheriff’s Rodeo was held at the Glen Helen Regional Park during the third weekend in September. Over 26,000 people attended the three-day event which provided a memorable experience for the community and all who participated. Several of the world’s top professional cowboys performed bareback and saddle bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, barrel racing and team roping. Those in attendance enjoyed performances by PRCA Rodeo Clown Punkintown, Norco Drill Team and Riata Ranch Cowgirls. Last year’s specialty act was Cowboy Kenny Bartram’s Steel Rodeo Tour. Fans were on the edge of their seats during their performance.
The success of the rodeo and the support from the sponsors has allowed over $65,000. in donations to be given back to the community. Proceeds from our event continue to support the youth in our community with the ultimate goal of developing them into responsible citizens.
Cash donations were given to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Challenged Children’s Rodeo, Children’s Fund, the 4H Club of San Bernardino, Loma Linda University Hospital for breast cancer research, Man Up Crusade, Norco Cowgirls and various Sheriff’s Department Volunteer groups whose assistance is essential to the success of the rodeo.
Mark September 22nd, 23rd, and 24th on your calendars for this year’s Sheriff’s PRCA Rodeo that benefits the children of San Bernardino County. We encourage you to arrive early and meander among the many merchandise vendors and partake in the food and beverages that will be available to you.
