Glenden Rodeo

Following its successful return in 2015, the Glenden Rodeo was back bigger and better in 2016.

The local team at the Glenden Rodeo Association and the Glenden community have been very busy over the last twelve months, working hard on improvements to the June Maddern Memorial Rodeo Grounds and facilities, including new fencing and turf. The result was another spectacular Glenden Rodeo weekend, which was this year affiliated with the Australian Professional Bullriders Association and featured on their events calendar.

With entertainment for all the family, along with sensational demonstration of skill by some of Queensland’s best bull riders, the Glenden Rodeo drew a huge crowd, with people coming from all over the state to attend. The QCoal Foundation is proud to sponsor this community event.

The 2017 Glenden Rodeo will be back on 18-20 August.
