Great Western Easter Rodeo Success

Tuesday April 18 2017

The 2017 Great Western Rodeo was held on Good Friday April 14 2017. A good crowd enjoyed an exciting show in perfect Easter weather, with close to 4000 flocking to the venue.

The Great Western Good Friday Rodeo is an annual event run by the Great Western Football Club Inc. The event has been run at the Great Western Racecourse Reserve for the past 14 years.

In that time, the event has grown to become one of the premier rodeo events in Victoria with riders from all over Australia competing. Being over the Easter weekend and with the time honoured Stawell Easter Gift on that same weekend, there are often tourists from all over Australia and overseas in attendance.  The event usually attracts between 3500 – 4000 people and is a huge boost to the local economy.
