About MYRTLEFORD 65th GOLDEN SPURS RODEO
Myrtleford’s Golden Spurs Rodeo is the place to be on Boxing Day. Located just 3 hours from Melbourne in the Alpine Region of northeast Victoria, the rodeo is a family fun day where you can just kick back and enjoy the thrills and spills of a country rodeo.
Rodeo is conducted at the Myrtleford Showgrounds in a natural amphitheatre and there is plenty of room for everyone to see and be part of the action. Big screen replays ensure you won’t miss out on a thing.
Gates are open at 11am for junior and second division events, but the main program starts at 4pm and goes until 10.30pm. Barrel races, team roping, saddle bronc and bareback riding build up the day’s events to the open bull ride, where the bravest cowboys try to stay on for 8 seconds on some of Australia’s Happy Gill’s best bucking bulls - High Flying Akubra, Horrible Manners and his brother Rude Manners to mention a few.
Rodeo is fully catered and there is a strict no BYO alcohol or glass policy with all eskies inspected by security on arrival. Patrons are urged to bring their own chair, warm jacket or blanket for the late evening. Pass outs available to get these items from your car.
Up to date program will be uploaded website prior to the rodeo and will also be available on entry. Any changes to the rodeo will be available on Facebook
