Minetti Mini Rodeo
By Invitation Only • Not Open to the Public
This fun and educational event is targeted specifically for the children of our community. Youngsters are bussed in from local schools including areas such as Guadalupe, Orcutt, Santa Maria and as far away as Sisquoc. Because of our many supporters, we have been able to add children from VAFB, Nipomo, Oceano, Arroyo Grande and as far north as Shell Beach. We have also been able to include the Santa Ynez Valley, Solvang, Buellton, Los Olivos and as far south as Gaviota. These additions have resulted in over 6,000 children attending! The Mini Rodeo Committee pays for all related event expenses, including but not limited to, the bussing of the children. There is no cost to the children to attend this event!
If your child, age 6-17, would like to compete as a contestant in the Minetti Mini Rodeo, they must attend the Mini Rodeo Qualifier Event on Sunday, April 30th at the Elks Unocal Event Center.
