10th Annual Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo

Off to the Rodeo

Looking for some good ole fashion fun today?  Join us at the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo – fun for the entire family, not to mention the richest 2-day rodeo in the nation with a purse totaling over $200,000. The top 30 rodeo contestants in saddle bronc and bareback riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, bull riding and team roping will come to San Juan Capistrano for this chance of a lifetime.

Rancho Mission Viejo has committed to the preservation of the cowboy way of life in celebrating the golden age of early California history and the American West.  The Ranch family made the commitment to sponsor and conduct the annual Rodeo to help perpetuate the tradition of rodeo and to pay tribute to the sport, to the heritage of the land, and to raise funds for local charities.

I admire the cowboy tradition of “passing the hat” in support of a sick child or needy friend, with all proceeds from the rodeo benefitting local charities.  My husband’s family and their firm Jackson, DeMarco, Tidus & Peckenpaugh are once again proud sponsors of this time-honored tradition.  To date, The Rodeo has distributed more than $1,100,000 to local charities in San Juan Capistrano and continues to provide support for important San Juan Capistrano charities.
