72nd annual Rodeo Kicks Off Wimberley’s July 4 Weekend Activities

Wimberley kicks off five days of Independence Day activities on Friday night with what has become the area’s premier family event of the summer; the 72nd annual Veterans of Foreign Wars Rodeo.

Sponsored by Oldham-Cummings VFW Post 6441, the rodeo runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at the Chester Franklin Rodeo Arena, 401 Jacobs Well Rd. four miles north of Wimberley.

Each action-packed performance includes bull riding, calf roping, bareback and saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, team roping, women’s breakaway roping and women’s barrel racing.  For the younger cowboys and cowgirls there are two mutton busting and two calf scrambles nightly.  Famed bull-fighter, clown and barrel man Leon Coffee will be featured each night.

Food is provided by Wimberley’s Creekside Cookers BBQ along with several other vendors.  There are more than 27 vendors with merchandise and services for those at the rodeo.

This is a pro/open event sanctioned by the Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association.  The proceeds are used to support a variety of community service activities and organizations. Bo Davis of Gonzales is the producer, and the stock contractor is the Cadillac Rodeo Company.

Gates open at 5:30, the first mutton busting event is at 7 and the rodeo begins at 8. There is ample parking on the VFW grounds.  Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under.
