Canungra Hotel Rodeo

You read that right! A true rodeo with real cowboys, a whole lot of family fun and live entertainment right in the middle of Canungra! Locals and visitors descend on the showgrounds and the vibe is electric.

Held yearly, the Canungra Hotel Rodeo is a community favourite that has really taken off. Usually held on the first or second Saturday in July, their Facebook page will confirm dates once they get released each year. For as long as us locals can remember, the event has always been held in the town, but had started drawing a healthy crowd of more than just cowboys before it had to be paused due to covid.

But, like all good things, the Canungra Hotel Rodeo returned in 2022 bigger and better; and what originally began as a small event all those years ago, has since grown to organisers needing to cap entry at around 6,000 tickets – making it a hot event on the Canungra social calendar!

Gates open by mid-morning and guests can bring a picnic blanket or camp chair and enjoy watching all of the action – including food stalls, children’s rides, mechanical bull, and of course a licensed bar proudly supported by Canungra Hotel! It’s a great country atmosphere with the main events kicking off around 2pm and the live music continuing late into the evening.

The itinerary at the popular rodeo includes a Bull Ride, Barrel Racing, Saddle Ride, Bareback Ride, Rope & Tie, Steer Wrestling, Breakaway Roping, Team Roping and Street Undecorating. For young cowboys, the junior events include Breakaway Roping, Barrel Racing and Mini Bull Ride.

Held at the Canungra Showgrounds, come stay with us and experience a true one-day rodeo – the best in South East Queensland – and given it is a full points score rodeo for the National Rodeo Association, the event attracts some of the top riders from across Queensland and New South Wales.

The showgrounds are a short 10-minute walk from Canungra Hotel, so talk to us about your accommodation needs and make a weekend of it next year!
