Dixie Sun Bowl in St George


The St. George Dixie Round-up Rodeo has been a local event for decades now in the St. George area.  The Sun Bowl is adorned in 100 USA flags flying in the breeze during the events.  The flags are a lovely sight to see and a beautiful tribute to our great nation.  People come from miles around to see the cowboys and cowgirls and their fearless bull riding.

St. George Dixie Round-up Rodeo Highlights

Kids Night – Thursday, September 15, 2022 will be kids night, so bring the whole family out for this fun event. Kids ages 11 and under are free this night. There’s quite a savings if you plan to bring several children to the rodeo, be sure to attend this night. You can use that saved money to buy them a delicious hamburger!

Mutton Busting –  What is mutton busting?  Basically, it’s kind of a kid size version of bronco-busting.  Kids, usually ages 4-7, climb on a wild sheep, and then try to hang on for 6 seconds. Not many kids can hang on that long and it’s definitely a cute event to watch.  My kids had several friends participate in the event years ago when they were young.
If your children would like a chance to mutton  bust, you can sign them up at the IFA store. Sign ups start August 10, 2022, and goes until September 3, 2022. Then they will Draw on September 4, 2022 and notify the parents of the contestants that got picked.  Mutton busting at the Dixie Round Up Rodeo is sponsored by the Intermountain Farmer Association at 310 N Industrial Rd. St. George UT.
