The St. Paul Rodeo Association initiated a Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1998 for those outstanding individuals in various segments of the rodeo over its long history. Inductees can include past champions, stock contractors, contract acts, local committee individuals, and outstanding horses or bulls. Inductees are honored during a steak barbecue each year on the day prior to the commencement of rodeo activities.
Each year, a Hall of Fame Barbecue is held the evening prior to the start of the rodeo in the Main Stage Tent on the west side of the arena and includes the induction ceremony for new inductees, an old fashioned steak barbecue with all the trimmin's, and musical entertainment for the pleasure of all attendees. There will be an oral auction of wares benefiting the JCCF (Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund). This kickoff evening offers a chance to relax and have a little fun in anticipation of the activities of the rodeo.
