Dita Holifield’s All American Rodeo is returning to New Town & Country Stables in Waimanalo! The state’s largest rodeo is putting on a series of exciting shows from Thursday, June 20, to Saturday, June 22.

The All American Rodeo is a family event featuring Hawaii’s top male, female and keiki paniolos matching their skills in Hawaii’s most extreme sport: Rodeo! This year’s theme, “The Salute to the Farmer,” will showcase over 120 top outer-island and Honolulu-based contestants as they put their skills, pride, and horsemanship skills on the line to win their share of over $20,000!

At the rodeo, families can enjoy a petting zoo, pony rides, food vendors, a craft fair, mechanical bull riding, truck and car displays and live country music! A country style selection of tasty food and beverages will be available to purchase from Papa John’s Pizza, Teddy’s Bigger Burger, and Aloun Farms.

Opening night on Thursday, June 20, honors all union members while the first show on Saturday, June 22, is designated as Armed Forces Day from 12 – 2 p.m. and offers a military discount at the door. The rodeo culminates with the grand finale at 7 p.m. on Saturday where the coveted rodeo buckles and cash will be awarded. Each show features a myriad of exciting rodeo events including:

– Bull Riding
– Ranch Bronc Riding
– Double Mugging
– Military/Local Chute Double Mugging
– Wahine Barrel Racing
– Keiki Barrel Racing
– Match Barrel Racing
– Wahine Steer Undecorating
– Invitational Select Team Roping
– Wahine Break Away Roping
– Cowboy Hula
– Keiki Muton Buston
– Rodeo Clowns

Families can also enjoy monster truck rides and ride alongs for the keiki in the rodeo arena at the end of each performance. This year, pa’u riders will make their inaugural breathtaking appearance on horseback as they showcase the beauty of the five major islands. While the rodeo continues to share the storied history of the paniolo, Muton Bustin returns as keiki compete on sheep to see who can stay on the longest.

The All American Rodeo is committed to the local community. In 2018, Dita Holifield’s All American Rodeo donated $32,000 to Aloha United Way and hopes to achieve or exceed last year’s donation again this year. Additional funds will be raised for Catholic Schools of Hawaii, The High School Rodeo Foundation, Kapolei High School Hurricanes, and the Lu Fabrito Miss Rodeo Scholarship Award.
