Return of Cottonwood Rodeo


Hundreds of rodeo lovers once again gathered in the grand stands. In Shasta County, California the Cottonwood Mother’s Day Rodeo celebrated their 58th year, crowds, cows, and cowboys in tow.

The rodeo, held at the Bobby Jones Arena in Cottonwood, drew a massive crowd there celebrating a myriad of occasions. Although fun-filled and exciting, the event organization took precautions to ensure the safety of those in attendance. As the spectators entered the rodeo grounds, posted signs advised on current safety precautions. Throughout the rodeo grounds, there were plentiful hand-washing stations, spectators were able to bring their own food and alcohol, and the food trucks provided followed take-out precautions.

California still has an advised stay-at-home order in place, including in Shasta County. The Shasta County Sheriff’s Department said they would not enforce the stay-at-home order for the Mother’s Day celebration.

The Cottonwood rodeo included many events including tie-down, team and breakaway roping, saddle and bareback bronc, steer wrestling, barrel racing, bull riding and wild cow milking. An open jackpot was featured in the morning, while the performance soaked up the sun in the afternoon.

The Cottonwood Rodeo Organization and 4 Star Rodeo Company brought many smiles and cheers this Mother’s Day. We can not wait for many more rodeos this summer!
