The Ram Rodeo Tour is excited to bring the action-packed sport of rodeo to the town of Burford on June 8 and 9, 2019! A two-day event, rain or shine, the Burford Ram Rodeo returns to the Burford Fairgrounds to bring a fun weekend of wild and western action to the County of Brant and surrounding communities.
Rodeo 101 on the Burford Ram Rodeo website explains, “Bull Riding pits a cowboy against a 2,000 pound animal whose bucking is as unpredictable as its personality. The cowboy must hang on for eight seconds with one hand and the rider cannot touch him or herself or the bull with his free hand.” If that doesn’t grab your attention and pique your curiosity, then this event may not be for you.
Cowboys and cowgirls and everyone else in between is invited to come and see the action-packed live sport of rodeo, with events as seen at the Calgary Stampede. The rodeo features the sports of competitive barrel-racing, bareback and saddlebronc riding, bucking broncos, pole bending, and—the world’s most dangerous sport—bull riding! With food vendors, lots of children’s activities and table vendors, the Burford Ram Rodeo is a fun, family experience for all ages.
Gates and food vendors are open both Saturday and Sunday beginning at 11:00 a.m. There will be lots of displays to enjoy, as well as horse drawn wagon rides, bouncy inflatables, and (weather permitting) Remax Hot Air Balloon Rides as well. The competitive entertainment begins at 2:00 p.m., so make sure you arrive well before then to secure a good viewing spot. Visit the Burford Ram Rodeo website to view the full schedule and plan your trip.
