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 celebration on the day prior to the commencement of rodeo activities. This event takes place in the Hall of Fame tent on the west side of the arena and includes the induction ceremony for new inductees, an old fashioned steak barbecue, and musical entertainment for the pleasure of all attendees. In addition, this year, there will be an auction of wares with proceeds going to the Austin Smith Foundation. This kickoff evening offers a chance to relax and have a little fun in anticipation of the activities of the rodeo.
