The Tees Agricultural Society will once again be hosting the Tees Rodeo this weekend. President of the Society, Crystal LaRose believes the rodeo has been going for the last 44 years.  

“We had a couple of years there during the COVID period where we weren't able to have it. And where we had like a we had a Tees rodeo, but it wasn't sanctioned by CARA (Central Alberta Rodeo Association). So, we didn't really count that in the numbers. I want to say this is our 44th,” said LaRose.  

This year’s rodeo is sanctioned by CARA and LaRose says you can expect all the regular rodeo events with kids events happening throughout the day and races and adult events in the evening. This year, Ladies Ranch Bronc Ride will be new.  

“Ladies can enter and they actually ride in  a regular saddle instead of a bronc riding saddle. That's where you get the ranch part. It's just a regular ranch saddle,” said LaRose.  

Overall, LaRose is expecting a good turnout for all rodeo events. In addition to other activities that will be ongoing in the community. Food trucks will be on site, attendees are welcome to camp in the area for free, and there will be cabarets each night with live bands and DJs. There will also be a petting zoo and face painting for kids. On Sunday, there will be a Cowboy Church and pancake breakfast.  

The event will be free on Friday but will cost admission on Saturday and Sunday. The event is completely ran by volunteers through the Tees Agricultural Society. LaRose says the event wouldn’t be able to happen without the support of their sponsors.  

“We have a lot of our same supporters every year that that have been supporting us for many years. We have a few new ones and some that have been supporting for 44 years,” she added.
