Livingston Roundup

The Livingston Roundup originated in 1925. The roundup was one of eight Class A rodeos in the nation and at the time earned more than $3,000 dollars. The Livingston R Rodeo still carries that tradition with the best rodeo scene that the West has to offer and some of the toughest rough stock across the United States.

In the late 1920’s the Livingston Roundup Association was developed, stating its purpose was “to give shows, rodeos, roundups, to hold riding contests, roping contests, bull-dogging contests, horse races and to give any and all other amusements in the City of Livingston or other places in the County of Park and any and all money or profit over and above any and all expense of the operation shall be used for the purpose of advertising the County of Park and for the purpose of beautifying the City of Livingston, Montana.”

The Roundup Rodeo is held every summer on July 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. This event is presented by the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association and Women’s Professional Rodeo Association. Professionals and amateurs compete in saddle bronc, bareback, team roping, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, bull riding, and barrel racing. In 2016, the association paid $96,000 to draw contestants to Livingston, the total winnings total up to $200,000.

The rodeo events include bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, and barrel racing.

The mission of the Roundup is to have the Best Pro Rodeo in the state of Montana, and it is one of the leading rodeos over the July 4th holiday.
