The Juneteenth Rodeo exists to expose Pacific Northwest youth to the traditions, athleticism, and grit of Black cowboys in America. Through the rodeo and other yearly events, we will create a platform for Black cowboys to compete and gain exposure. Through these initiatives we will encourage youths to explore their own passions and create the next generation of Black cowboys in our region.
