Mandan Rodeo Days

One of the world’s oldest rodeos, the Mandan Rodeo will celebrate its 145th year in 2024. Every July 2nd-4th in Mandan, ND, the Mandan Rodeo hosts some of Pro Rodeo’s most premier riders across the sport of rodeo. In 2023, the Mandan Rodeo welcomed in a new permanent rodeo facility — Dale Pahlke Arena — which has been called a world class rodeo facility by many in the industry.

Both July 3rd and 4th were sell-out crowds in 2023 to see the performance and the Mandan Rodeo hosted its first concert featuring country music star Chancey Williams.

The Mandan Rodeo is a 501(c)3 organization that elevates the sport of rodeo in North Dakota and continues to grow following its partnership with Funatix Events.
