The Okotoks Pro Rodeo is held annually and in 2012 will be celebrating it's 21st year. This non-profit Rodeo is produced entirely by volunteers, hosting contestants and visitors from all over Canada, USA, Europe, Asia, New Zealand & Australia. It will 'take over' the Town of Okotoks with western themed events and activities for the whole family.
FUN FACT: Jay Magnussen was one of the founders of the Okotoks Pro Rodeo back in 1991!
