It attracts entrants from Canada, United States, Australia, and New Zealand. It's known as a make it or break it event for cowboys wanting to earn points to take part in the MRCA and CCA finals.
Annual Community Celebration
The Virden Indoor Rodeo and Wild West Daze is kicked off every year with a community celebration which takes place on 7th Avenue in Virden. It runs from 5 pm to 9 pm on the Thursday night prior to the rodeo. This event is hosted and organized by the Virden Community Chamber of Commerce and would not be successful without tremendous support from sponsors and local businesses.
Every year the Virden Community Chamber of Commerce focuses on getting new entertainers and activities for all to enjoy. The combination of the human chuckwagon races, rodeo queen fashion show, inflatables for the kids, mechanical bull and sidewalk sales creates an atmosphere of fun and entertainment for all ages. So come on down and help us kick this year's rodeo off with a bang!!!! View schedule
