The celebration committee was formed in 1951 to make the Dayton Rodeo a community wide celebration. The committee consists of 5 voted members from two clubs: the Dayton Community Club and the Dayton Wranglers Saddle Club.  The presidents of each club are alternate members of the committee and have voting privileges in the absence of one of the members. 


Committee dynamics change every year and that brings new ideas and ways to improve, we continue to strive for consistency and solidity, and we are very forward thinking.  We have set some simple goals: to continue to strengthen the relationship with sponsors which enables the committee to reach our goals; to continue to keep ticket prices low for the consumer: and to maintain the high-level of production you have come to expect - ultimately making the Dayton Rodeo the BEST PRO RODEO that we can.

Committee member work consists of designing, planning and implementing improvement projects that will enhance the entire rodeo experience; we are striving to implement consistent procedures; and we are focused on continued sponsorship development to produce the best rodeo experience for everyone!

Make sure you plan to attend the 2024 Dayton Rodeo to check it all out! LET'S RODEO in Dayton!
