Isanti Firefighters Rodeo Grounds

All ages welcome!

Gates will open at 5:30 pm

Maddy Braun Band 7:00 pm

Hairball 9:00 - 11:00 pm

We are shifting our rodeo grounds into an awesome music venue! 

Come join us on the arena floor, or sit in the bleachers to watch Hairball perform from their stage in the arena of our Rodeo grounds in Isanti. 

Food vendors and beverages available on site!

A message from Rodeo Chairman Tom Pagel:

August 19th will be a monumental day for the Isanti Firefighters Rodeo Association, the city of Isanti, and East Central Minnesota. After 47 years of successful fundraising by producing an annual professional rodeo, the association is venturing out into new territory.

On Saturday August 19th the gates will open at 5:30 pm at the Isanti Firefighters Rodeo Arena in Isanti, Minnesota. The rodeo arena panels have been removed for easy access to the arena floor. Food and beverage will be available. Parking is free.

At 7:00 pm The Maddy Braun Band will take the stage on the main arena floor. If you’ve never heard Maddy, you’ll be impressed. A very talented young lady with talented musicians backing her up.

At 9:00 pm HAIRBALL takes the stage in the most grandiose and explosive fashion you will ever witness. During the past 23 years the Hairball Band has evolved into an explosive national touring band that brings homage to the biggest 80’s acts in the world. 20 different acts- KISS, Van Halen, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, Aerosmith and many more.

Bands put on concerts-Hairball puts on an event. Please join us as we attempt this new fundraising effort in support of the Isanti Firefighters Association. Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won’t soon forget. The lights, sound, smoke, fire, and screaming hoards of fans….to merely call it a concert would be like calling Mount Rushmore a roadside attraction!

Hairball performs every show as if it could be their last. August 19th will be a 100% full on, no holds-barred, exciting, chaotic, fiery party will have to be experienced to be believed! Thank you and we hope to see you all on August 19th in Isanti, Minnesota.

Isanti Firefighters 48th Annual Pro Rodeo

 Isanti MN Firefighters Rodeo Association


Isanti Firefighters Rodeo signs with Pro Rodeo Announcer Tim Fuller.

Pro Rodeo Announcer Tim Fuller has signed with us, and will be returning to our arena in 2023!  We are very excited to welcome Tim back to our booth this year with a completely new leased professional sound system.



Bands both nights start at the end of each rodeo performance, and are free with any admission ticket!

Friday Night- Shane Martin

Saturday Night- Jake Nelson


Chad Berger's Bucking Bulls has signed a multi-year contract with the Isanti Rodeo late 2022.  This means we will see the same great rough stock we have seen in the past, for the next several years.  Who is ready for some great rodeo!


Our way of paying it forward to our brave contestants.  For 2 years in a row now the Isanti Firefighters rodeo has added purse money.


We retired old faithful and invested in a brand new 7' Arena-Vator groomer for 2023.  With multiple rows of S-tine shanks, a pipe lever and a roller in the back we will be able to renovate and condition our soil in a single pass!  Thank you to our long time sponsor MN Equipment and Cory and Heidi Haskamp for making this possible.


The Isanti Firefighters Rodeo Association is excited to share a contract with Rocking T Productions in 2023 for all music and sound production.  Rocking T will be setting up a system at our grounds that is sure to saturate the stands with high quality sound and rodeo event production.  Great to have you on board Mr. Coenen!

*Mutton Bustin' is sold out for our 2023 shows*
Calling all kids!  Attention moms, dads, and legal guardians of little cow kids wanting to Mutton Bust. We are offering Mutton Bustin' as a pre-rodeo activity both nights this year.  We would LOVE you to be a part of it with us :)

If you have a child 5 years or older and 55 lbs or less, please consider signing them up in advance to ensure they have a chance to ride.  The number of riders is limited for this activity!  (we only have so many of these cute little sheep to ride!)  Its going to be a GREAT show!!  Click on the sheep image above to pay the $10 registration fee, complete the waiver and to get signed up!
DISCLOSURE!!  In all fairness!  If you sign up to Mutton Bust and are not in position as instructed (on time!) we must move on and will select kids who are on the waiting list.  It is extremely sad to see people (kiddos) come 3 minutes after we are forced to let their spot go, PLEASE plan accordingly. We ask all kids to be in position (north west corner) at 5:35 p.m. each night. Thank you!
