2020 Royal Court Announced

Princess Monica Eichler, Queen Kearsten Friedrich, Princess Saige Johns 
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 will take place June 30 - July 4, 2020. The young women had answered questions about current events & rodeo rules & personel, 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 to the gallery of supporters and demonstrated horsemanship skills.

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.
