We can't do it without you!
Our mission is simple: Bring rodeo and the spirit of western heritage back to Gilroy while enriching our community both culturally and financially. Gilroy Rodeo is proud to be a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) entity, with no paid employees. Our supporters may work year-round devoting their time, goods, services and money to the event. As we continue to grow each year, we know we can't put on this event without the help of our community.
A bigger event means we may need more help, but we are also able to lend a helping hand in return. We strive to return all profits from the rodeo to youth organizations in our area, with special attention to those organizations involving agriculture. We have also founded our "Gilroy Kicking Cancer" initiative, which allowed us to donate $2,381.85 to fight against pediatric cancer in 2019.
In only our third year, we are so grateful for the progress we have made. However, we are excited to continue making an impact on our community in hopes that one day Gilroy is not only known for its Garlic...but also for its annual rodeo!
