The 81st Annual Santa Maria Elks Rodeo is just around the corner and entries will be accepted beginning Monday, March 18th, 2024 for one of the rodeo’s most loved events: Mutton Bustin’! Local kids have a unique opportunity to try their hand at some real rodeo action, riding a mutton (sheep) in the rodeo arena. The event is open to all children ages 5 to 7, weighing under 60 pounds. Each chosen contestant will have a chance to perform in one of our Rodeo events held during the four days of rodeo fun May 30th - June 2nd, 2024. Each participant will also receive a “goodie” bag of gifts. A champion belt buckle will be presented to the daily winner.
Check back here at 9:00am (PST) on March 18th, 2024 to enter your child into the drawing. The form must be completely filled out in order to be entered.
