Now in its 39th year the Limestone Sheriff’s Rodeo is set for May 14-15, 2021, and along with two days of high impact rodeo competition, organizers look to engage the community by offering several family-friendly events in the week leading up to the rodeo. Considered the largest outdoor rodeo east of the Mississippi it gets underway both nights at 8 p.m. with gates opening at 6 p.m. Competitive events lined up for both nights include bareback bronc riding, calf roping, break-away roping, steer wrestling, saddle bronc riding, kids calf scramble, cowgirl’s barrel racing and bull riding. As cowboys and cowgirls compete for prize money, the crowd is also entertained with professional rodeo clowns, chuck wagon races and other performers.
Daily ticket prices are adults $15 (advance) or $17 (gate) and children 12 years and under $10 (advance and gate). Tickets may be purchased in advance at Limestone County Sheriff’s office and online at www.limestonesheriffrodeo.com.
