May 19th – 21st, 2018 @ the Keremeos Rodeo grounds
Competitions and horse racing date back much further, these were held at our pioneers ranches or wherever they could find a good place and at various dates. Eventually a group of community minded men decided to form the Keremeos Rodeo and Racing Association and bought a permanent site across the river from the Keremeos town sight. The Elks lodge was formed in 1944 and partnered up with the Rodeo and Racing Association, they bought additional acreage and has kept updating the facilities by replacing most of the wooden bleachers, a steel pipe arena, washrooms with showers and sewer with a sani dump. The most recent improvement a large kitchen with a food concession and beer garden.
It has become popular for group camping or family and other reunions.
The 2018 Keremeos Rodeo runs on May long weekend. Saturday May 19th, Sunday May 20th and Monday May 21st.
Gates open at noon and the Rodeo starts at 1 pm.
