Homestead Rodeo celebrates 75th year Jan. 26-29, 2024

Southernmost rodeo in the continental U.S.

Florida is a strange amalgam of Deep South meets New York, with a little Havana and Puerto Rico thrown in.

If you travel around the Sunshine State, you also learn about a rich history of cattle ranching and “cow hunters” — what Florida called its Cracker cowboys, who “hunted” cattle by rounding them up with distinctive-sounding bullwhips.

So, it is not all that surprising that Florida has a rich history of rodeos in its small towns. One of the longest lasting traditional rodeos and the southernmost rodeo in the United States is in Homestead.

The Homestead Rodeo celebrates its 75th year in January 2024.  It’s one of the first rodeos in the circuit of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and thus draws cowboys from around the country who want to start accumulating points toward the December national finals.

Homestead Rodeo draws top talent from around the country.

The rodeo is a mix of professional rodeo events and small-town celebration, but organizers bring in top talent — the best rodeo announcers, rodeo clown and barrelmen and in past years, a parachute jump into the arena by the U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team.

Seven championship events are  featured; bare-back and saddle bronco riding, tie-down roping, team roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing and the crowd-pleasing bull riding.
