Edgewood Rodeo Days was started 28 years ago when Gerald Perrinjaquet brought the idea to the attention of the members of the chamber board at the time. The idea was a hit, and the chamber started to plan the first rodeo. It was held at the Edgewood Feed Mill’s grain elevator. Back then, it wasn’t an occasion that would bring in thousands of people. After two years of having the rodeo at the feed mill, it was then held at the town football field. And the next year, once again at the feed mill. In 1992, Day Welterlen donated the current grounds to the city of Edgewood and the event has been at the same location ever since. Many improvements and advances have been made since it was started. Since then, the rodeo has become a popular weekend of fun for all to attend.
