LEXINGTON—Saddle up for the 16th Annual Plum Creek Rodeo to take place at the Dawson County Fairgrounds (1000 Plum Creek Parkway) in Lexington this weekend. Rodeo events will begin at 7:30 p.m. on both Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8.
Lexington Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sarah Neben said nine different events are scheduled as part of the rodeo action with local riders as well as those from beyond the borders of Nebraska.
“We’re going to have over 200 cowboys and cowgirls from Nebraska but also from Kansas, Colorado, Iowa, and South Dakota. And then our stock contractor is again Phillips Rodeo Company and they do a great job for us,” Neben said.
Advanced tickets are available at the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce: $8 for adults, $3 for children ages 6-17, and those ages 5 and under get in free. At the gate on Friday and Saturday, tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-17, and free for ages 5 and under.
Neben said she, her husband, and their five children love going to local rodeos over the summer and she encourages everyone to check out the rodeo and all that Lexington has to offer.
“It’s a great event for Lexington, it brings people from all over so we’re just thankful,” Neben continued. “We love to have people in our community and this is one way, like I say, we can invite a lot of folks in. It’s a great event.”
The Lexington Area chamber of Commerce appreciates all of the help from volunteers, the rodeo committee, and sponsors. A free BBQ will take place on Friday and Saturday before the rodeo. Burgers, chips, and water have been donated by local businesses and will be available beginning at 7 p.m. while supplies last. The Dawson County 4-H will also be selling concessions during the rodeo.
