Welcome to the Panaewa Stampede Rodeo Website
It’s a Horse, it’s a Clown. No it’s a Rodeo. The 21st Annual Panaewa Stampede Rodeo will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 16 & 17, 2013 at the Panaewa Equestrian Center, just outside of Hilo, by the Zoo. The rodeo is sponsored by Hawaii Horse Owners, Inc.
This large and diverse rodeo features Team Roping, Barrel Racing, Bronc Riding and Bull Riding. In addition there are special events done only in Hawaii. Cowboys and Cowgirls will compete in Double Mugging and Pu’u Wai U just like our forefathers did in the early ‘Paniolo’ days of old Hawaii.
Our Youth as Keiki will compete with their other family members on sheep in Mutton Bust ‘in, Roping, Barrel Racing and Jr. Bull Riding. Young cowgirls will compete to be the 2013 Rodeo Queen.
More than a Rodeo, the Panaewa Stampede Rodeo is a Show with award winning Rodeo Clown, JJ Harrison and professional announcer, Buster Barton from the Pacific Northwest. Entertaining skits and laughter keep the keiki (children) amused throughout the two day event.
This Rodeo has become well known for its Cowboy Porker and Bull Run. The spectators are invited to
‘play’ with the Bulls in the Arena and win $500.00 each day of the Rodeo. Provided you have proof that you are over 18 years of age and are ‘sane and sober’ when you sign the waiver you enter these high risk events.
The Rodeo starts at 12 Noon on Saturday, February 16th and at 11:00 AM on Sunday, February 17th. Pre-Sale are available at Coldwell Banker Day-Lum Properties for $5.00 and at the gate on the day of rodeo for $7.00.
