International Round-Up Club Cavalcade
Jul 16, 2018 to Jul 22, 2018
Come to the International Round-Up Club Cavalcade in Pawhuska and enjoy the world's largest amateur rodeo. Clubs from Oklahoma and surrounding states will gather for rodeo competition, camping and dancing under the stars. Pawhuska's annual cavalcade is dedicated to keeping the spirit of the Old West alive by bringing together the best cowboys and cowgirls from nationwide amateur roping and riding clubs to compete for trophies and prize money.
The International Round-Up Club Cavalcade is, at its heart, a Western sports jamboree. Held on the Osage County Fairgrounds just south of Pawhuska, this Western heritage event will also feature a large pasture marked off to accommodate a vast number of RVs, campers and trucks that make their way to the event each year.
Come and witness exciting rodeo action as contestants in the cavalcade compete in a wide array of traditional rodeo events. The first performance is the queen horsemanship, held on Monday night. Tuesday morning will be filled with timed events, including chuckwagon and pony express races. Shows are held twice daily on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Enjoy the downtown parade on Saturday morning followed by an exciting Saturday night performance, culminating with the finals performance on Sunday morning. Cheer from the stands as cowboys and cowgirls compete in such events as bareback bronc riding, bull riding, wild horse racing, team roping, wild cow milking, calf roping, pony express racing, barrel races, pole bending, flag racing, chuckwagon races and a rodeo queen contest.
The International Round-Up Club Cavalcade will also feature plenty of food, drinks and novelty vendors, so come hungry and be prepared to browse through booths filled with a variety of Western items. A parade will be held Saturday morning and a dance is held each night after the rodeo performance. Dance under the stars to the sounds of several local and national performers at this year's cavalcade. Tuesday night's street dance in downtown Pawhuska, as well as Wednesday through Saturday night after the rodeo, will feature live music. Make your way to the International Round-Up Club Cavalcade and celebrate the heritage of the American people and the freedom of the great outdoors. This grand spectacle of Western culture and tradition, held each year in Pawhuska, features something for everyone.
