Giving Back

The St. Paul Rodeo relies on the support of hundreds of individual volunteers and organizational partnerships developed throughout the greater area to promote its mission: Offering a world class rodeo event in honor of our Western Heritage.

First Responder, Austin Smith, Honored - June 30

Our St. Paul community honors fallen volunteer firefighter Austin Smith in a way that would make him proud by honoring all first responders at the June 30 St. Paul Rodeo performance. All Police, Fire, and EMTs will receive a $2 discount for each ticket purchased for this performance. We will pay special tribute to all our first responders this evening.

Austin Smith, St. Paul Fire Department Volunteer Firefighter, was killed at the age of 30 in an explosion on February 3, 2022. Austin was a volunteer in every way; giving back to his community was a passion.

Act Now - Fundraiser Benefitting the St. Paul Fire Department
All donations received until July 5, 2022, will be designated to the St. Paul Fire Department in Austin Smith's name. Austin was a beloved member of the St. Paul Rodeo Family and the St. Paul Community. Our goal is to raise $65,000 to purchase an extrication tool set for the St. Paul Fire Department to replace 40-year-old equipment that is no longer functional with current vehicles.

RESULTS of this FUNDRAISER: St. Paul Rodeo Foundation donated over $75,000 to the St. Paul Rural Fire Department to be used for equipment updates in St. Paul in honor of Austin Smith. July, 2022

St. Paul Rodeo partners with JCCF - July 3

Once again, St. Paul Rodeo is proud to partner with JCCF (Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund) and will donate all tips at the Tack Room Saloon, Outpost Bar and Beer Stands to "give a hand up" to rodeo athletes who are injured through their participation in rodeo. With the help of our fans, the St. Paul Rodeo's 2022 donation to JCCF was $24,534.26!

On July 3rd, we give special honor and thanks to these PRCA World Champions, top competitors, and those with a dream of rodeo fame. Rodeo is considered one of the most dangerous and difficult sports in the world; the rodeo athlete puts personal well-being on the line in each and every event. With no guaranteed salaries or injured reserve provisions in rodeo, these athletes are often left with no place to turn when faced with serious, sidelining injuries and the accompanying financial hardship. This is where the JCCF steps in! The JCCF provides need-based assistance to those injured through participation in the sport of rodeo until they are able to get back on the road and compete again.

For more information about JCCF see http://www.justincowboycrisisfund.org.

Patriot Night - July 4

On July 4th, we honor our veterans and active military with a special grand entry recognition for each branch of our U.S. Military. Tickets to this performance are discounted $2 each for all military personnel.

The American Legion, which works to enhance the well-being of America's veterans, their families, the military, and our communities by their devotion to mutual helpfulness will be in the Hall of Fame Tent. We encourage our rodeo fans to see all the things they are doing for our veterans.
