Enjoy a fun family night with the Ashland rodeo just a few minutes from Columbia. The event will be held this year on August 26 and 27, 2016 at 8:00 pm. With activities beginning on before the rodeo, there’s something for everyone to experience.
With 40 years of history, the Ashland rodeo is something to see. Saturday afternoon provides plenty of fun for everyone, beginning with the parade at 2:00 pm, which goes through downtown. A Kiddy Roundup starts at 6 pm where kids get to try their hand at rodeo events, including stick horse barrels and roping. A Calf Scramble is held both evenings with kids attempting to win money as they chase calves out in the arena. Concessions are available with a beer tent for the adults. Music performances are held on both Friday and Saturday nights. Tickets are $13 at the gate or $11 in advance while children 6-11 cost $5. To find out how to get tickets, check out the website here.
