The Redditch Westerners BLUE RODEO Country and Western Festival, is an outdoor festival held annually in August at Stratford upon Avon Racecourse. The festival is primarily a 2 day event (Saturday and Sunday) with live music from 10.30am till 11.00pm on Saturday and 10.30am till 6.pm on Sunday. There is also the option to camp for the weekend within the festival area from Thursday to Monday (includes live music on the Marquee on Thursday and Friday Evening) In addition to the live music, there are static living history displays, with log cabins of the pioneers and settlers, tepees of the Native Americans as well as a military encampment from the American Civil War era. There are also arena displays, authentic cowboy camps and a fast draw contest with both individual and team event trophies to be won. Your refreshment is catered for with hot and cold food stands, licensed bar and ice cream vans. Should you wish to top up your western wardrobe, there are western trade stands too.
The BLUE RODEO is fast becoming one of the more popular small festivals on the Country and Western scene and, the venue at Stratford offers us plenty of room for future expansion. We would be happy to see you at the next "Rodeo" so for those who wish to visit our festival for the day, "its a pay on the gate" festival with plenty of free car parking.
