Cutter Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram All American Rodeo 2018
New Town & Country Stables, Waimanalo, HI
There’s an incredible need for a mainland-style rodeo in the state of Hawaii, since Habilitat discontinued producing the event. For most of the 90’s and 2000’s hardcore fans, local families, and the military enjoyed watching the over 100 head of cattle and the top local cowboys competing in the heart-pounding extreme sports of Barrel Racing, Ranch Bronc Riding, Double Mugging, Team Roping, Keiki Barrel Racing, Wahine Steer Undecorating, Cowboy Hula and of course…Bull Riding!
Now in it’s 5th year, producer Dita Holifield, The Queen of Country Music in Hawaii, has stepped up to the plate again alongside Bud and Katy Gibson, owners of New Town and Country Stables in Waimanalo, to bring back the state’s largest and most exciting Rodeo!
On September 20th, 21st, and 22nd, families will enjoy a Petting Zoo, Pony Rides, Food Vendors, Craft Fair, Mechanical Bull Riding, Truck and car displays from Cutter Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and live country music!
Up for grabs…..the coveted belt buckle and the largest winnings of $20,000 in hard cold cash.
