                $25 per person for the rodeo and that price includes the $12 fair admission.

The Victoria Day Long Weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. Another event that also marks the start of summer in the lower mainland is the Cloverdale Rodeo and County Fair which is in its 124th year!

For those who haven't been to the rodeo before, its your chance to be a cowboy in the city. The main event is the rodeo itself where you can see some horse racing and bull riding. At the same time, is the county fair which is full of rides, concerts and trade shows. This year features the first annual cowboy cookoff where you can have a taste as some cowboy bbq. The real party starts when the sun goes down as the Longhorn Saloon opens its doors. Its recommended to get there early (or buy VIP tickets) because there is always a line up to get in. The 2012 fair runs from May 19-21.
