2020-2021 Royal Court

2021 Royal Court

The tradition of the St. Paul Royal Court is an important one. Young ladies dream of growing up and representing the St. Paul Rodeo at parades, schools, rodeos and other events.

Due to the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 St. Paul Rodeo and related events, the St. Paul Rodeo Board of Directors is pleased to invite the 2020 St. Paul Rodeo Royal Court to continue their reign in 2021. We appreciate Princess Monica, Queen Kearsten and Princess Saige for their patience during this unprecedented time.

There will not be a Court Tryout this Fall (2020), we look forward to the 2021 St. Paul Rodeo and once again seeing the Royal Court greeting the crowd at full speed in the historic St. Paul Rodeo Stadium.

Long Live Cowgirls!

After a full day of competition with eight talented cowgirls, three young ladies were chosen to reign over the 85th Annual St. Paul Rodeo which scheduled for June 30 - July 4, 2020. The young women answered questions about current events & rodeo rules & personnel, and were asked to share thoughts on a variety of other issues. Then the focus moved to the arena where each contestant made a speaking presentation and demonstrated horsemanship skills to the gallery of supporters.

The St. Paul Rodeo is proud to announce its Royal Court for 2020: Queen Kearsten Friedrich, Princess Monica Eichler, and Princess Saige Johns. The next weeks will be filled with preparations for the Court's reign which officially begins in January 2020.

The Court will continue the grand tradition of representing the Nation’s Greatest 4th of July Rodeo in parades, rodeos and other events throughout the Northwest.
