Sweetwater Co. seeks to host rodeo finals

Rock Springs, Wy. – Sweetwater County is seeking to host the Mountain States Rodeo Circuit Finals.

The Sweetwater County Fair Board this past week endorsed a request to support a bid by the county Events Complex to host the rodeo.

Sweetwater County Events Complex Executive Director Larry Lloyd says the bid will seek to have the rodeo for three to five years.

The Mountain States Rodeo Circuit Finals has been held in Denver in recent years. The event has not been hosted by Sweetwater County since 2000.

The rodeo is one of 12 in the United States intended for competitors who must compete, or prefer to compete, on a regional level rather than on a national level.
