Mutton Bustin'

Entries Opening on March 18th.

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.
