Notice our name change! We started as the Eureka Sesquicentennial Committee in 2009 and then became the Reagan Fest Committee for the next 7 years. Since the committee does more than just a festival we decided to change our name to include all of our events plus any future events. After an overwhelmingly successful and fun first annual rodeo in Eureka, the committee has set their eyes on bringing more rodeo action and excitement to town. As the 2016 Big Hat "Rich & Famous" tour finale rodeo you'll see more cowboys, & increased prize money, awards and seating. The spectacular bucking livestock of the Big Hat Rodeo Company will attract the best cowboys & cowgirls in the nation. New for 2016 will be a "Meet the Cowboys & Clowns" where kids of all ages can enjoy some interactive & fun games as well take a chute tour to meet the animal stars of the show. More thrills, spills and laughs are guaranteed so mark your calendars today. The Eureka "Rich & Famous Tour Finale Rodeo is Friday, Sept 30 and Saturday, October 1 at 7PM daily. See you at the rodeo!
