The 20th Annual Blue Rodeo Festival 9 and 12 August 2018
Redditch Westerners Association BLUE RODEO Country and Western Festival, is an outdoor festival held annually in August at Stratford Upon Avon Racecourse. Next years festival runs from Thursday 9 August until Sunday 12 August 2018, with live music from 11.00am till 11.00pm on Saturday and 11.00am till 6:15.pm on Sunday. There is caravanning and camp for the weekend included with the full festival weekend within the festival area from Thursday to Monday (includes live music in the Marquee on Thursday and Friday Evening). Each year we build on what we learn from previous years and as you may know with this our 20th annual Blue Rodeo Festival it is getting better and better, although I do wonder how we improve, but we will certainly try.
In addition to the great live music from popular artistes, there are also 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 authentic cowboy camps and the fast draw contest with both individual and team event trophies to be won. Are you fast enough or do you require the services of Berry M. Deep towns Undertaker?
Don't forget to bring your guns as we have our shoot out competitions with overall best individual and team shoots taking place to crown the annual winners. See if you are the fastest over the weekend or best performing team.
Your refreshments are catered for with hot food available on site from the festival catering stand, licensed bar and an ice cream van. Should you wish to top up your western wardrobe, then we also have traders stands for that must have western clothing and accessories..
