The Big Timber Weekly Rodeo Series all started when Mardi Cline and her husband, John Smith, were tired of seeing their town of Big Timber on the decline during COVID-19. So they decided to start their own weekly rodeo series. The couple has been running and producing the weekly rodeo series since July 1st. As owners of their own stock contracting company, JS Rodeo, they are able to use their own stock in the rodeo. You can see them helping out all over on Wednesday nights, from counting and moving cows, to coordinating the Grand Entry.

This Wednesday, September 2nd is their last rodeo of the summer season and they plan on going out with a bang!  The rodeo starts at 7:00 p.m. at the Sweetgrass County Fairgrounds in Big Timber, MT. Tickets are available at the gate and are $15 and kids 10 years old and under are Free.
