The Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo

The Minot Y’s Men are a group of volunteers that give their time, talents, and money to host a rodeo that sends our local kids to the Triangle Y Camp near Lake Sakakawea. Through the Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo, we give kids the ability to learn core values that will lead them long into the future.

The 66th Annual Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo, host of the Badlands Circuit Finals, is
scheduled for October 9th , 10th, and 11th , 2020. Our committee has been and will
continue to work closely with local officials and the North Dakota State Fair to
implement extra safety measures. We understand some fans might not feel
comfortable attending this year; 2020 has been a wild ride, and we are hoping our event
will provide a reprieve from some of the madness for those in attendance.
In an effort to always thank the people that help this show go on, we want to extend a
heartfelt Thank You to all of our sponsors and partners for their continued support.
Your generous contributions over the past years and this year have helped put on one
of the largest and most successful indoor rodeos in our region and it’s all for a great
cause – The Triangle Y Camp!
