Garfield County Frontier Fair Assoc./Nebraska’s Big Rodeo

Welcome to Nebraska's Big Rodeo

Rodeo returns to Burwell this year much as it did in 1921 when Homer C. Stokes started the town's first-ever rodeo in 1921 with wild horse race, bronc riding and calf roping.

The facilities at Nebraska's Big Rodeo are listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, so care is taken to try and keep the event very similar to the way it was presented in the 1920's. The facilities boast one of the largest outdoor rodeo areas in the world, so the rodeo committee tries to use it to it's fullest potential.

Few rodeo shows offer action both on the track and in the arena simultaneously. Events like clown acts, the dinner bell derby, a mounted flag presentation and much more may be happening at the same time as regular events take place in the arena. Many visitors say they must return just to see what they missed the first time.

Nebraska's Big Rodeo and the Garfield County Fair feature facilities which capture the rustic charm and importance of the annual event. The rodeo and fair are held each year on a sprawling 40 acres of grounds, and have plenty of room to accommodate the growing needs of such a popular event. Features of the facility are:

· One of the world's largest outdoor arenas.
· 3/4 mile track surrounding the arena.
· Original covered grandstands built by the Garfield County Ag Society.
· Ten bucking chutes, roping chutes, newly installed pens and sorting corrals.
· Outdoor dance pavilion.
· 4-H Extension building, animal exhibits and barns, and continuous youth shows.
· An established midway with permanent stands and a large community building.
· Nostalgic ticket office and booths.
· Centrally located on Highway 11, near the City of Burwell.
· Beautiful grounds which are recognized throughout the country and which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Loup Rivers Scenic Byway
,

Traveling 150 miles from Wood River to Dunning along Nebraska Highways 11 and 91, the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway follows the river valleys of the Loup Basin to the beauty of the Sandhills. Named for three rivers, The North, Middle and South Loup Rivers, that rise from the Ogallala Aquifer deep in the Sandhills, the byway encourages you to slow down and enjoy small town hospitality.

From a stay on a working ranch with a visit to Nebraska’s Big Rodeo, to paddling a designated canoe trail, visiting a local festival, shopping for that special antique or just relaxing and gazing at the stars in some of the darkest skies in North America there’s something for you along the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway.

So instead of zipping past the Heartland of Nebraska on I-80, turn off, take your time and let central Nebraska and the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway put a smile on your face.
