The Angola Rodeo, the longest running prison rodeo in the nation, is held twice a year, in the spring and fall.. The first rodeo normally being in the third weekend in April (however in 2014 the rodeo will be held on the fourth weekend due to Easter) and the other every Sunday in October.

The popularity of the Angola Rodeo has grow so large that the stadium has been enlarged numerous times. All rodeos sell out in recent years and it is therefore strongly reccommended to purchase tickets well in advanced.

Information on dates, times and tickets can be found at their website at: http://www.angolarodeo.com

Posters can be purchased at the rodeo or obtained by contacting a rodeo representative at (225) 655-2060 or 2133. The fee for the poster is $10 + $4.50 S&H. Cashier's Check, Money Order, Visa or MasterCard is accepted for payment.
