Parsons Stadium

The Rodeo of the Ozarks began in 1944 by a group of Springdale men and women led by founder, Shorty Parsons. World War II was at its height. People were working hard and around the clock. Entertainment and relief from the unrelenting headlines were much needed. The idea of having a rodeo was born.

Parsons Stadium is incredible! There are activities going on year round. Great prices on everything and the actually know what their job is and they do it well. That keeps everything moving at a good pace. The Rodeo is always around July 4th holiday. Rodeo of the Ozarks is one of the biggest rodeos held in the U.S. It’s good clean fun no matter what the activity is except for the demo derby. Enjoy yourself when you go!
