Grand Entry

Community is so important to us here at Gilroy Rodeo. Even if the members of your organization are not likely to be a rodeo contestant, there is still a place at GR for you! Before each performance, we take pride in showcasing organizations and sponsors committed to preserving western heritage in the South Bay Area during our Grand Entry. During the in-arena parade, we also introduce our visiting rodeo queens and take a moment to sing the national anthem. We consider this time to be a celebration of all things western and agriculture - everyone is welcome to join us at the start of our event. 

Is your organization interested in joining us? Fill out the form below to be contacted regarding participation. 

All entries MUST be horseback or in a wagon. Filling out a form, does not guarantee participation - you will be contacted for next steps.
