The boot kick-off event has become an annual tradition of Rodeo Week over the years, and it has typically been held Tuesday night of Rodeo Week at Kendrick Park. This year, the event will take place at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds this Saturday, July 10th at 4 pm. Sheridan WYO Rodeo Board member Linda St. Clair explains the reason for the change.
While the date and location of the boot kick-off has changed, the event itself will be business as usual.
St. Clair said that the boot kick-off will wrap up at 6 o'clock, and then they'll clear the Fairgrounds and open the gates at 6:30 for the Rodney Atkins concert that evening.
Along with the change to the boot kick-off, this year's Sheridan WYO Rodeo will also include a classic rock concert Friday night, featuring The Marshall Tucker Band and Molly Hatchet. A 4th night of PRCA Rodeo has been added this year as well.
