Valley Fire District
If you're in town for the full day of events, then you'll want to start it right with a hearty breakfast at the fire hall. Located at the east end of Front Street (near Fic's Conoco Station) you can get a plate full of pancakes, eggs, bacon or sausage and something to drink all for a donation to the crew.
The Valley Fire District services more than 250 square miles of northern Granite County, using three substations located in Hall, Maxville and Gold Creek in addition to the main fire hall in Drummond.
The Valley Fire District is a volunteer fire department.
Some riders can't stay for the main event, and so they compete earlier in the day during the morning session of the Rodeo Slack. If you want to catch some great competition without all the crowds, this is where you want to be!
Drummond Rodeo Parade
It's a slice of Americana that is not to be missed. With classic cars, old-time ranching equipment, local clubs and organizations and local celebrities all take part in what is growing to be a great annual event. The parade starts at Fic's Conoco Station on East Front Street and heads West. And of course there's plenty of candy for the kids. Get your spot early and bring your lawn chairs!
"Quick Finish" Art Show
12:30 - 2 p.m.
The "Quick Finish" Art Show allows art and rodeo patrons to actually see art as it is being created. From paintings on canvas and saw blades to welded sculptures, artists bring in their pieces and finish them live. This allows people to see the art firsthand and even speak to the artists to get a better understanding of them and their craft. It is not to be missed!
78th Annual Drummond Kiwanis PRCA Rodeo
It's a Montana classic! The 78th Annual Rodeo in the home of the "World Famous Bullshippers" will feature some of the best talent that the PRCA has to offer. They all look forward to this mid-season event for its high level of competition and traditional western feel.
The rodeo will take place in the Frank Ramberg-James Morse Rodeo Grounds, owned and operated by the American Legion Gold Star Post 125 in Drummond.
"Quick Finish" Art AUCTION
5 - 6 p.m.
If you found a favorite piece for your home or office during the art show before the rodeo, you can bid on it after the last ride! Get your checkbooks, credit cards and cash ready so you can take your masterpiece home with you that day!
