 Isanti Firefighters Rodeo Association

Welcome back Rodeo Fans!!

Our 2017 contracts are finalized, this year's performance will be second to none.

Please join the Isanti Firefighters as we host our 41st Annual Rodeo in downtown Isanti, MN on July 7-8, and again on July 9th for the regions best PRCA Xtreme Bulls event in 2017!

We're bring back some history this year.  Radical Ryan Rodriguez will be our man in the can.  Some of you may remember several years ago Ryan jumped a mini bike, blew up a piano (literally) and fished for his dog in our arena with his son.  I've heard some people say he is worth the ticket alone!

Announcer Tim Fuller will be returning this year with his familiar voice from the box.  Tim has become the voice of our Rodeo over the years, which we are excited to continue. 

The IFRA has signed with Dave Noreen and his band Bad Jack this year for all 3 days of music entertainment.  Bad Jack has deep history in and around Isanti, we are excited to have Bad Jack's history be a part of our...history, again this year.

Last year THE WORLD CHAMPION bull rider Sage Kimzey rode in Saturday's Rodeo event and again on Sunday in the Xtreme bulls event with 39 other extremely renowned bull riders.   Rumor has it, Sage's younger brother Trey Kimzey (also rode in our arena last year as a trick rider with his sister Dusta Kimzey) has a bull riding card this year.  IFRA has signed with Championship Pro Rodeo this year, like last, with hopes of drawing up the Kimzey's and their unbelievable talent.  World Championship Bullriders riding World Finals bucking stock on a Justin Boots award recipient most improved arena surface, all while enoying an ice cold Pepsi or a crisp can of Coors from Golden Colorado.   Sign me up!

New this year is a significant upgrade in our arena sound system, some improvements to our preferred, club and box seating, relocating our announcer to get closer to the action and some refinements to our gates to limit our entry lines even more. 

To be continued in the next few months, come back soon!
