History of The Rodeo:
More than three-quarters of a century ago – In 1935, the Black Hawk Encampment was held in Nephi during the month of August. A relatively new activity as far as central Utah was concerned, was the main feature of the celebration that year, rodeo. Juab valley’s first professional rodeo was held in conjunction with the 1935 Black Hawk event.
The celebration featured programs from many of the neighboring towns throughout the valley. Although the other programs were well received and applauded by those in attendance it was the rodeo that gathered the most praise.
The early organizers intended the celebration to bring residents and visitors alike together to enjoy outstanding family activities and a wide variety of scheduled events.
In addition to all of the fun events, there will be food, fun, and games. Bring the family out and enjoy the rodeo, food, and parades!
