The University of Montana Western Rodeo Team is excited to announce that the 54th Annual Montana Western Rodeo Banquet will be held Friday, March 29, 2024 in the Keltz Arena. The evening will begin with no - host cocktails at 5 p.m. followed by a prime rib dinner at 5:30 p.m. along with a silent and live auction. A dance will close out the evening with live music provided by King Friday.

Ticket prices for the event are as follows:

The rodeo banquet stands as the primary fundraising event hosted by the rodeo team each year. The funds generated from this banquet play a pivotal role in sustaining the rodeo program. The proceeds contribute to vital aspects such as student scholarships, facilitating essential practice opportunities, offsetting travel expenses to and from college rodeos, covering hotel accommodations, and supporting the overall expenses associated with organizing the Montana Western college rodeo in the fall. The attendance and support at this banquet directly impacts the success and sustainability of the rodeo program. 

UMW Rodeo is also excited to announce that they will be paying tribute to the enduring legacy  of Benny and Rooster Reynolds, two of Dillon’s most iconic rodeo heroes. Their significant impact has played a crucial role in shaping Dillon’s rich rodeo heritage.

“We are very grateful for the ongoing support that the Dillon and surrounding communities consistently extend to our student rodeo athletes and the program each year,” said coach JT Robbins. “We look forward to another successful rodeo banquet!
