The Edgewood Rodeo Days first started in 1987. Gerald Perrinjaquet, a local businessman, brought the idea to the Edgewood Chamber of Commerce Board. In the beginning, the rodeo was held at the Edgewood Feed Mill and once at the high school football field. In 1992, Day Welterlen, another local businessman, donated the land where the rodeo is located to this day. The community of Edgewood has improved and advanced this event through the years for all ages. So, what are you waiting for? Come to visit and enjoy Edgewood Rodeo Days!
Here are the fun-filled family activities planned for this year's event:
- The rodeo starts nightly at 8:00 P.M. Three Hills Rodeo INC. puts on the best rodeo action in Northeast Iowa. Family night at the rodeo will be Thursday, June 21, 2018.
